This is an indication of adware, malware, extensions in your chrome etc.

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.

Ok, first go here and download hitmanpro. Install and run it. *use free version*

After it runs, it will show you what is on your pc and remove it if it is a known virus/adware/mal etc.

https://www.hitmanpro.com/en-us/hmp.aspx

Reboot the pc.

Then, in your chrome:

Google Chrome:

  1. Click the menu icon "" at the top right of the browser window, choose "Tools" and choose "Extensions" to open a new "Options" tab.
  2. Uncheck "Enabled" to disable an extension, or click "Remove" to delete it completely.
  3. Enter "chrome://plugins/" in Chrome's address bar to view plugins that add compatibility and functionality, such as Apple QuickTime or Adobe Flash,
  4. Click the "Disable" link under the plugin you want to disable.

When done there, lastly,

Step 3: Reset your browser settings (all computers)

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More Settings.
  3. At the bottom, click Advanced.
  4. Under "Reset," click Reset.

when I goto extensions I don't see that particular website from which I am getting popups from. So what should I do in this case?
Software technician: Isaac Franklin, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 8 months ago

If you are going to a website and they are giving you pop ups. You shouldnt go to that site if possible.

The only way to use that is disable popups in that browser if you want to keep using it.

What website is it?
