Because of the popup ads, I suspect you may have malware on your system.

Please go to the following site and download Malware Bytes for the Mac, do a scan of your system, and allow it to remove whatever it finds. Then run it again until it no longer finds any objects. Let me know if this improves the function of the computer.
