Default How do I get rid of these pops ups?

Hello there all. I have an issue with my computer and wondering if someone can help me. My issue is that whenever I open a browser I have these ads/pop-ups like in the pictures below. I don't know if it's a virus or something, but I might have gotten it from downloading something. I'm wondering if someone knows what I can do to fix this issue is there an free software for this? Thank you.

EDITED: ps sorry the email is back to front read from bottem up.

are you useing chrome by any chance? That is what I am useing.


OTHER PERSON.

New to me in this respect I would till check browser config or uninstall broweser after installing alternative and reinstalling if you prefer that one. I tend to stick with Firefox and chrome.

What browser are you using?
Chrome has funny settings that can trip you up like this.
If you can wait I will look when home but I am not following link
Also Google the first part of the link up to the.com

Hmm odd!


I keep getting a pop up window in my browser, not all the time but often when I refresh a page / open a link / view a picture or just click anything that makes the browser send or recive information. (on any site not just one site)


The pop up is nothing but rubbish, it is not takeing me to a dodgy site or trying to sell me anything, or download anything it just says error page failed to load / or something like that.


Here is the page that pops up, its always a new window and always the same link.

I have had no alerts from MacAfee so this is ether a undetected / new virus,malware ect that MacAfee has let slip past or I have no clue, as said MacAfee has given no alearts yet, been doing it for a few hours now, beging to get annoying now.


Clearing my cookies has not got rid of ether.


Advice?

I'd stick to using Chrome and if the popups continue download an extension called adblock plus from the Chrome Web Store https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...ibdccddilifddb

Ok I am still getting that random pop up in the bottem right of the screen it is sometimes questions and somtimes a short video.

no signs of other pop up but not been 10mins yet so might still have it.

I have the virus ID here though but dont know anything about it or how to use the ID, no idea if it is even related.

But you might want to run a scan anyways.

Ok just woken up and booted up my PC, I have not installed CC cleaner or run another scan or installed addblock However theose peksy adds, both of them have gone away for now, no idea why...Maby it was that virus I deleted, in wich case OP I highly suggest you scan your systerm if it has not already been done.

Maby it was just it needed a reboot after getting rid of the virus.
