For some time now, while booting my computer and working, I get a pop-up from several websites that I never went to. My AV scans showed nothing and firewall is working nonstop. I also checked network diagnostics and everything seems to be in order. Is there a way to make it stop appearing out of nowhere?
if you are using google chrome go to customize and control google chrome (top and right button), and go to More Tools>Extensions and check any unknown and unwanted extension and disable it.
go to control panel and uninstall any unknown installed software
I believe you’ve marked to " I consent to install *** application " when installing a certain 3rd party program (after booting)
Would you mind to provide a screenshot of the referenced pop-ups? Perhaps I could take a quick look and guide you to get rid the nuisances.
