I am having problems with my laptop.  I'm having all kinds of pop-up ads, even though I have the the place checked to not allow them.  I use mostly Opera and Chrome browsers.  I've ran my antivirus program and it comes up clean.  I am so tired of pop ups I'm about ready to throw my laptop in the trash!!!  Can someone PLEASE tell me what I can do to stop them?  It's also running super slow, and locks up sometimes.  Please help!!
