how do I stop pop-ups?

Every time I use the computer I am plagued with pop-ups - particularly for sex sites. What is the easiest and most effective solution for this?

Any advice welcom,

thanks

Hello clarabelle, It appears you have a virus or other malware that has gained control of your system.

 

The only sure way that I have found to clean the system from these nasty code, is a fresh install of the operating system and the applications.

 

Some have suggested you can download and install a program called Malwarebytes, CC Cleaner and other applications to clean your system, but I have used these and have been unable to clean the system totally with these applications.

 

Since you didn't mention the Model of your system and the version of the operating system, it would be difficult to advise the best way to proceed.
