No matter which browser I use (although it seems to happen more on Google) I get ads popping up small ads/ two/ three at a time ads/full page ads.i am sick of it I feel like  getting rid of the computer , surely there must be a way of stopping them.

can anyone offer any advice.

Hey Everyone!

     Welcome to BC wickerman,well that seems like an easy enough solution and a quick responseas usual!Hope you enjoy it here with the best IT guys(& gals)in the world!!!!!

       You know,I have heard so many people with the same issue that you are having,I know VERY little about computers & I am wondering why I have never had an ad pop up since I am usingthe computer,which is only 8 months?Perhaps someone will tell us why that is & how it would work for you too,I have Windows XP.

Hey Phil,

     Told ya these guys are great!!!!!!I am so happy for you!As for me & my good fortune(blessing),that is probably what it is because I do recall something in the settings about ad-blocking,I just don't know enough to know how  that happened because I did nothing......perhaps it is a default setting or something?Now I probably really sound as computer illiterate as I really am!-lol But thats why I have BC,,,,,,they are all I need!

     I am a Phil too but have not been called by that name for as long as I could remember ,it's "Kwik" I am called by.....my dad was a Phil,my son is Phil & his baby due soon is already Philip & he has not even gotten here yet!

  So,I like your name-lol...........nice to meet you ,Phil

I think it would also be good to run these.


Please download MiniToolBox, save it to your desktop and run it.
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  • Flush DNS

Click Go and post the result (Result.txt). A copy of Result.txt will be saved in the same directory the tool is run.
Note: When using "Reset FF Proxy Settings" option Firefox should be closed.



Download TDSSKiller and save it to your desktop.
  • Extract (unzip) its contents to your desktop.
  • Open the TDSSKiller folder and doubleclick on TDSSKiller.exe to run the application, then on Start Scan.
  • If an infected file is detected, the default action will be Cure, click on Continue.
  • If a suspicious file is detected, the default action will be Skip, click on Continue.
  • It may ask you to reboot the computer to complete the process. Click on Reboot Now.
  • If no reboot is require, click on Report. A log file should appear. Please copy and paste the contents of that file here.
  • If a reboot is required, the report can also be found in your root directory (usually C:\ folder) in the form of TDSSKiller_xxxx_log.txt. Please copy and paste the contents of that file here.

ADW Cleaner

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will begin to scan your computer like it did before.
  • After the scan has finished...
    <-insert any special instructions here for what to uncheck OR remove this line if there are none->
  • This time click on the Clean button.
  • Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts.
  • Press OK again to allow AdwCleaner to restart the computer and complete the removal process.
  • After rebooting, a logfile report (AdwCleaner[S#].txt) will open automatically (where the largest value of # represents the most recent report).
  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
  • A copy of that logfile will also be saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder.

    .

    thisisujrt.gif Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
    • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
    • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
    • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
    • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
    • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
    • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.
