Unwanted Adverts Playing In The Background

Recommended Posts

Every five minutes or so my computer has Unwanted Adverts Playing In The Background

It's either Vanish , Dettol or Optrex

I have used Search and Destroy programme to get rid of unwanted downloads , and i thought they had stopped.

but tonight they have started up again and I can't find their source of origin

I must have downloaded them somehow

Has anyone else got unwanted adverts playing in the background ?

any ideas how to stop them , i have e-mailled all three companies mentioned but have got no responce

I've never seen that but it has to be damned annoying. It pays to advertise but get the hell out of my face, please.

Do you mean the pop up type of ads? You should be able to activate your pop-up blocker to prevent those ads from coming up.

Have you installed any Video/media players recently ? or logged in using social media ?

My last guess would be have you entered any online cleaning products contests...I do hope you find the cause.

I have used search and destroy and they appear to go , then out of the blue they reappear , i think they're linked to PC performance website downloads which reappear everytime i switch the computer back on even though i thought i get rid of them in the previous session

they can go days on end without playing then they start again , like today again

To get rid of all annoying ads, pop ups etc, has anyone thought about installing Adblockplus. It is very effective, easy to use and free.

Then just do a quick scan to check for malware.
