On my wife's laptop, she recently started having multiple pop up ads appear.  One of the ads I think is called Mapsworld and the other I do not remember the name.  What should we do to remedy this.  I ran a Malwarebytes scan yesterday.  However, that did not stop the pop up's.

 

Thanks rlight

Browser level ads? Use any adblocker program for that browser. I suggest uBlock Origin for firefox and chrome. Adblock Plus for Internet Explorer for Internet Explorer.

 

Also, you can give "AdGuard" a trail, if you liked the program then buy it.

 

The first line of options should be good enough and they are free.

 

IFF (=If and Only IF) you are an ad hater like me go for the second option.

Sounds like you require an ad blocker, I recommend/use AdBlock plus for IE or, for Edge Ghostery &/or AdGuard Adblocker extensions.
