How to block as many tracking/pop-up/ads sites as possible? Can you help please

I would like to block as many tracking/pop-up/ads sites as possible but I really need some wise advice from folk a lot more computer savvy than I am. I’d be very grateful indeed for any help and advice you can offer.

I use IE & Firefox and I’ve seen recommendations for Ghostery and/or AdBlocker Plus as being effective and easy to use. Are these safe and OK or are there better and more effective solutions, bearing in mind that I am not a technical expert when it comes to the details of using this sort of software?

Following a lot of great advice from this community I now use Malwarebytes and adwcleaner. I also use and Kaspersky Total Security, so it would be very useful if any new SW would work with these.

Many thanks

Phil
