Can anyone advise me as to how I can stop or remove unwanted ads
If you're referring to Adsense then there is no way you can remove those. But you may be able to keep them to a minimum on some hubs by choosing that they show low instead of high. Also I do believe that you can log into your Adsense account and block certain merchants from showing their ads through your adsense code.
From your own AdSense account, you can add unwanted sites to the competitive ad filter and that will stop them during those times when your ad ID is assigned to your Hubs. You can't control the ads when the HubPages ID is on the pages.
If your Hub has zero outgoing links to any commercial site, you can disable the ads on individual hubs. What constitutes a commercial site is anything else that runs ads or any page that sells anything, or any site in which you have a vested interest.
Don't worry about unwanted ad's. There is rarely anything much anyone can do about them. Only on your own personal websites will you see much of a change.
Thank you all for your replies, much appreciated, was one ad that I didn't care for, have got a bigger picture of situation now. Thank you

Have any of you found detestable ads on your hubs? It is a "game" with girls in bras...how distasteful I want it off my hub...do you know if we have a say in this? It has nothing to do with my poem and is disgusting to me.

I have a hub about Suicide on the Golden Gate Bridge that was published in 2009 and has been read more than 71,000 times and another on the status of the Golden Gate Suicide Barrier that was published in 2011. Ads on both of these hubs were just disabled today (05-19-13), can anyone tell me why?...

I currently have 10 featured hubs and am able to see live ads on my site. But when I apply for Google Adsense...it is getting disapproved. Please someone help me out. Able to see ads but why Adsense not approving me. Thanks...

So, I've heard about click fraud, and I know not to click my own ads, but when it comes to friends and family, how broad does that go? Is there anyone in particular I should tell NOT to click the ads on my hubs?

I've never generated a cent from these two programs and they've also never really worked properly. Constantly my adsense claims its active then I'm not approved, then it just mucks up everything. I'm not making any money on hubs as it is but this isn't helping anything.

A couple days back I was following a thread (Link Here) where SunSeven was talking about a hub that was taken down because the ads "started showing Google Public Interest" ads.Nelle Hoxie made a comment about how that stuff is bad and can cost you your adsense account. ...
