Hello, I can help you with this question
Do the pop ups only appear in facebook? nowhere else?
yes only on facebook
okay, this is usually caused by facebook themes or installed apps
You may also want to try removing apps from facebook itself that may be causing the pop ups. Once you have logged in to Facebook, click on the Account button at the top right of the page and then select the option that says “Privacy Settings.”[IMAGE][SRC][/SRC][ALT][/ALT][WIDTH]100[/WIDTH][HEIGHT]100[/HEIGHT][STYLE][/STYLE][/IMAGE]Once you have done this, near the bottom left of the page, click on the link that says “Edit your settings.”[IMAGE][SRC][/SRC][ALT][/ALT][WIDTH]100[/WIDTH][HEIGHT]100[/HEIGHT][STYLE][/STYLE][/IMAGE]Now, at the right extreme of the “Apps you use” area, click on the button that says “Edit Settings.”Once you have clicked on that button, you will see a list of all the applications you have authorized. On that list, click on the x at the right extreme of the app you want to remove. The system will ask you to confirm the action, and then the application will be removed from your account, which means that it will no longer have access to your data.
ok uninstalled faa
check and see if the popups continue. If they do then continue with the next suggestion I described.
OK I have uninstalled facethemes from my programmes but I still receive advertisements, are advertisement the same as pop ups
advertisements on the side are nomal
popups in the center of the screen are not
blocking your view
does this answer your question?
or do the popups still occur?
I am currently uninstalling all my apps that I do not use, will see how that affects performance
okay let me know
it is working faster but i still get adverts in centre part, they re videos and want me to click on them.
what are the advertisements for?
some are games some are adverts to work from home some are single sites wanting members
are you using internet explorer or firefox?
trying running firefox and see if the popups show on there. If they do not then we know Internet Explorer is the culprit
not sure how to run firefox
you can download it here: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/fx/
click on the green firefox free download button
what does it do
it is a browser just like Internet explorer
Your browser most likely has adware attached to it causing the popups. By running firefox and seeing if the popups show or not will determine the cause
install and run a scan of your computer. This may take some time depending on your computer. You can bookmark and come back later to this page and let me know your results. http://www.justanswer.com/computer/5dhue-stop-pop-ups-appearing-facebook-page.html
Just downloaded firefox and all the adverts are removed, will leave it at that just now, if any problems then I will try the malwarebytes next. Thanks for your help.
