Hello Genia,

I will help you now. Please tell me more details about the pop ups. Do you get them constantly on every site, or only on certain websites? If you go to google.com do you get popups there too?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.

I haven't really noticed but I get them all the time but I have not seen one on google.com.

Expert:  technicalcat replied 2 months ago.

If you get them very often, you may likely have a malware problem. Would you like for me to connect directly to your computer to fix this up while you watch and communicate with me?

Expert:  technicalcat replied 2 months ago.

If you don't want remote services, and want to continue with Q&A, please tell me more about these popups. What do they say? What websites do they show up on?

What do the popups say?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.

I've gotten some Facebook ones and the last one was for a medical service.

Expert:  technicalcat replied 2 months ago.

You do appear to have malware on the computer, so I really need to know exactly what they say. If possible, take a screen capture and send it to me as a reply here. thanks.

OK, but it may take awhile. I am running Malwarebytes now.

Expert:  technicalcat replied 2 months ago.

ok

Customer: replied 2 months ago.

No viruses found by Malwarebytes.

Expert:  technicalcat replied 2 months ago.

yes, unfortunately removing malware often is not as easy as running malwarebytes. if you are getting popups on sites that don't have the popups you are seeing, then you certainly have malware. this is why i suggested the remote connection, as it's pretty much the only way i can access your computer and clean things up. if you'd like to try, there is a satisfaction guarantee if I'm not able to clean it up properly for you. just let me know how you'd like to proceed. thanks.

I'll give it some thought an then get back to you with some evidence.
