In google chrome pop up adds have started appearing all over the pages in last few days.
I ran full virus scan with microsoft essentials and deleted the 1 threat it found, i uninstalled everything not recognised that updated in last week, ran malware and c cleaner i also run ABP add blocker i even un/reinstalled google chrome !
The adds are gone but the empty boxes they used to be in are still showing up all over the pages.
How can i get rid completely ? there is one in particular in top right corner is a page peeled back a bit which to hit the X to close it opens first ?
I tried restore point but cant find it ?
Help please if you can thanks.

Ah well - that's interesting!

My PC is clockwork (ie a tad slow LOL) and MHF hasn't been loading at all well until today. I said to Pete I'm sure there's summat about it that isn't compatible, cos if I try to go on it, the internet just hangs.ormal' - so perhaps summat got in to Fun and Jim has locked it out again?

I've said for a long time I wonder if it's the Ads, because links people put on - here and on other Forums I infest - do the same thing as Fun was doing. The Daily Telegraph always does it but most others are OK.

It happens on a few different forum type sites i visit but not so much on the e bay, amazon and facebook pages.
I give up so I now log in using internet explorer which used to be slow which was why i switched to chrome in the first place but everything is fine so far using it instead of chrome. Maybe its a google/chrome problem ? theres always mozilla fire fox etc to use iff it goes pete tong again.

I had this same very problem last year, I ran AVG/Restart PC run AVG/Restart and so on an so on, also Microsoft essentials and god knows how many other programs that came recommended - none got rid until i came across someone on the net who had the same very problem and they were advised to install a program (which is free by the way) called RogueKiller, it found the culprit straight away and deleted it - however it did advise me to keep running it everyday for about 5 days as these bad viruses can still keep showing up after they had been deleted - i did exactly as advised and had no problems ever since (y)

many many years! since I was a kid
the issue is that google track what you view and try to target you with adverts. forums are one of their favourite targets, especially those that represent a particular hobby etc

try uninstalling adblock plus and reinstall. then clear your cache shut down chrome and restart it
