Default Question for those tech savy

Anyone know where I can get a program, particularly for free, that will get rid of the adware on my computer? The adware I have makes words look like links sometimes, even though they are not. Also constant stupid ass pop ups of random videos and links to various businesses etc.

Also run CCleaner after Malwarebytes. Here is a link for the download. Get the free version.

Malwarebytes premium now includes anti exploit protection. I have a lifetime sub. Works great! I also use iobit's Advanced System Care. I use the paid version but the free one is good too. It helps fix shortcut errors, registry problems, and many other issues. They do try to unload a bunch of useless stuff during the install though. Just do not agree to try any of them. www.iobit.com. It really is a complete Windows suite. If still having problems try running Trend Micro's House Call. It is a free browser based anti virus utility.

spybot S&D

I also run 3 different adblock addons, that has stopped 99% of ads popping up. I wont run it on websites I trust, like Youtube, but everything else, gets the block because they don't monitor the ads that come on their websites.

I run Ublock Origin. It's a browser add-on and stops a ton of adds and pop ups. I know they have it for Firefox and Chrome. Not sure about IE.

Be careful with CCleaner. You can eff up your computer if you don't know what you're doing and just start clicking things willy nilly.

What browser are you using?

You may have a virus and not malware. Do you have any AV software installed?

If you didn't, be sure to run the full scan, not quick scan. It should take an hour or two.

Scanned my computer with Webroot, who I do have a subscription with, and still didn't detect anything. What the hell... I know something is not right with the PC, or at least the Browser. Can they hide a virus or malware that well that you cant find it?
