Is there any way you can stop Google sending "targeted ads"?

A friend wanted to buy a log cabin for his back yard so a couple of weeks ago I looked up a few suppliers for him on the Internet. Big mistake - ever since then I have had ads for the same companies facing me on every webpage I've opened. It's driving me nuts. Even if I wanted to buy a log cabin, I am so annoyed by this that I would never use any of those companies. Is there any way to escape this? Am I trapped forever by enforced, unwanted ads? What happens to freedom now we are trapped in Googledom?
