random commercials play on computer

About a minute after I start my computer I have random commericals playing on my computer which will play during my music.  I have search for this source but I am not able to find it.  If I turn off my internet connection, it will stop but as soon as I turn it back on, the commercials will start at the point they stopped.  help!

Re: random commercials play on computer

Hi! I've dealt with this problem more than a few times with family members. Often, its fixable with a scan of your computer with a spyware/adware program. Personally, I like Microsoft's:

It's free and works well. There are a few other solutions, but I'd try this first. Fingers crossed!
