Since I downloaded a few (3) free apps on the internet,

I now need to block all kinds of unsollicited pop up ads.

I hope there is a solution to this annoying situation?

I use Explorer 11 with Windows 8.1.

Thank you ''very mucho'' for contributing to my tranquility,

by showing me how to get rid of this problem!

Knowledge is power!

Have a good day.

You also need to look at the free things you installed & see what came along with the ride. AdBlock Plus does help on IE, but it cannot get rid of infections or installed adware. Run a Full scan with whatever security you're using & allow it to clean things up, if possible.


If you continue to have issues, you may need to create a thread in the Malware section of the Forum.



Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.
