Welcome to Justanswer.com, my name is Dustin.
I'm sorry to hear about the issue you are having, I will do my best to help you resolve it.

Expert:  Dustin replied 4 months ago.

To get started, I need to know what type of computer you are using, a Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 or a Mac.

If its a Mac, please check the OSX version as follows, Click the apple sign at the top left of your screen, then click about this mac. And then where it says version, send that to me as a reply.

Also, when did you first notice all the popups, today ? Or has this been happening for a while?

Pop ups for a while

Hi, by the time you responded I was off shift for the day.

Lets start by running a second opinion virus scanner.. Even if you already have a virus scanner we need to run this

http://www.surfright.nl/en

Download it, then open it , install it, and run it.. If it finds any red or grey items let me know..

When it completes, right click the top item, then click apply to all > delete

Then click next.. Then click activate free license, type your email address in twice and then click next again.

Once it activates and removes the viruses it found.. Restart your computer.. Then, for good measure reset chrome, since chrome was showing too many popups.

If you get stuck or run into any issues, let me know.

Expert:  Dustin replied 4 months ago.

My apologies for the delay in getting back to you. For the last day and a half Ive been away from work.

If you still need help with this issue, I may need to connect to your computer directly to fix the issue, just so I can see what the actual problem is.

let me know if you still need help with this issue or not, when you can. Thank you,

Dustin S
