I also get pop-up ads using Chrome and I am about ready to uninstall it.  I can go into Amazon and search for an item and get a pop-up that has a labeled 'Selection Link Shopping Powered by Price Peep'.   However when I do the EXACT same thing in IE 8 - no pop-ups at all.  I have downloaded AdBlock plug in for Chrome that has stopped some pop-ups but not all.

 

I thought it might be Amazon so I tried musicnotes.com for sheet music.  Similar problem; in Chrome I get a pop-up "Looking For Sheet Music?" with a list of sites.  It pops up from the lower left of my screen.  I use IE 8 - NO POP-UPS.

 

I have an older computer:

Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.2
OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, Service Pack 3, 32 bit
Processor: Intel® Core™2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz, x86 Family 6 Model 15 Stepping 11
Processor Count: 4
RAM: 3326 Mb
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8300 GS, 512 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 152531 MB, Free - 21057 MB; I: Total - 953867 MB, Free - 410026 MB;
Motherboard: Dell Inc., 0GN723
Antivirus: Norton 360, Updated: Yes, On-Demand Scanner: Enabled

 

And still like XP - gong to have to change soon, but why the pop-ups with Chrome?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Click on Delete.
Confirm each time with Ok.
You will be prompted to restart your computer. A text file will open after the restart.
Please post the contents of that logfile with your next reply.
You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.



Last run ESET.
