Hi littleone,


Welcome to the HP Forums!


For you to have the best experience in the HP forum, I would like to direct your attention to the HP Forums Guide First Time Here? Learn How to Post and More.


I understand that after installing Google Chrome, you are getting pop ups, but you were not previously. You have uninstalled Google Chrome and some games but the issue remains.You have checked your Internet options and the pop up blocker is on. You can download Windows Defender to help with malware, spyware and popups. Here   are links to Microsoft documents on Using Windows Defenderand Getting apps for your PC.  Here is a link to a YouTube Video on the subject. How to: Stop pop ups for Free in less than two min.    I hope this has helped.
