I am new to this forum. Before I created an account, I would just google the problem and bleepingcomputer would show up in the results and then I would follow the link. So here is my problem, I have been getting pop ups. I followed the suggestions listed here in the forum such as running rkill, adwcleaner, malwarebytes and the others listed, but I am still getting pop ups no matter what I have tried. I even tried doing all the suggestions in safe mode. The results indicate no problems.
I am not sure if it is normal to get pop ups when going to various websites. In other words, is it normal for a website to display pop ups as part of the website? Can I block those pop ups and if so, how?
I get 2 pop ups every time I go to bleepingcomputer forums which I thought was odd since that is where I was looking for information to stop pop ups. Since I created an account here (a few minutes ago,) I notice I do not get those 2 pop ups if I am signed into bleepingcomputer, but if I am signed out, I get those pop ups. Is this normal behavior? Can I stop those pop ups even if I am not signed into bleepingcomputer?
Thanks for any help with this.
Please keep in mind I am not very computer savvy.
