On start up, a tab opens to an advertising tab of Simple spider solitaire advertising this game that I already have as a download to my pc for a very long time. This is very annoying since I already have many tabs open to work in to reminding me of my project. This has been going on for over 2 weeks now. Why am I having a game advertising itself and it is the tab that I see immediately. I would like that adverting to stop. I love having the tabs I need available on start up but not ads.

This is the tab that opens to this address automatically: https://pages.pubfinity.com/randomsaladgames/spider/welcome.

Is there an easy solution? I am not too savy with pc stuff. Or is this an issue you need to know about? Thank you for your time, Unhappycamper
