I am running Malwarebytes Premium and Windows Defender. I have an HP laptop with Intel i7 processor and just fired Chrome browser. I now have Firefox which gave me fits before, but is better than the collusion Chrome has with its contracted advertisors to post advertising too frequently. Did Chrome leave a legacy for me ... a residual that keeps the ads coming, or is it something else or is it both ? But first my computer needs a scrub.
Where is the problem ? Adware or the former Chrome I had? Chrome tracked my every move on the web and customizes ads based on where I have been with their paying advertisors.
Chrome was listed many places in my task manager tracking me and matching up my supposed interests with Chrome's contracted advertisors who best match my interests when I don't want to buy any thing. The ads interfrere with my reading placed inside the text I read some times, having to leapfrog over the ads. I get numerous pop ups also.
Please have me administer the very best in your opinion of applications to clean this stuff out and to keep ads and pop ups out.
