I have been having the same problem for about 5 days now. It seems to happen sporadically. At times I can access these sites and at other times the pop ups start. I have tried all of the fixes I could find : Malwarebytes, AdwCleaner, Ccleaner, Spyhunter, etc. I did not download the software so my only problem is ridding my computer of the pop up. None of the scans I have done with any of the software can detect any virus or malware on the computer.
Coincidentally whenever this is happening to my Dell laptop running Windows 7 my other Dell laptop running Windows XP cannot access Facebook, G-Mail or YouTube. At the same time none of our hand held devices; a generic Android tablet, a Samsung tablet and 3 Samsung smart phones cannot access Facebook or YouTube. None of these devices interact with each other except for Bluetooth when sending photos back and forth.
No software had been installed onto the laptop prior to the pop ups starting. After my last attempt I just powered down the computer for a while instead of restarting it. It seems to be working fine now and all of the hand held devices cleared up at the same time.
Is it possible that this is coming through my wireless modem?
