hi, I deleted and reinstalled without success, also around this time(don't know if it is related)pop up dating adds appear on some websites and it's difficult to scroll away for them, they follow your mouse down the page filling up the page, perhaps its malware

Now that you have raised the subject of malware, and it sounds like it could well be, your best course of action is to leave this topic and go and start one in the section 'Am I infected?'.

 

When you do start this topic please give - at a minimum - the make and  model of your computer and your OS, and read the notes pinned at the head of the section.
