Ad pop-up virus won't go away
« on: November 27, 2013, 02:47:44 PM »
So while I was on my browser I noticed some random ads popping up whenever I click, but sometimes I can click without the pop-up appearing. Most of the time it creates a long line of  "Ads not by this site" on certain pages making it impossible to scroll to certain areas, I also use ad-block plus as an addon so that could be reason its mostly just text saying "Ads not by this site". I used various anti-virus and scanner programs but all they found were some adware tracking cookies. I would choose to delete those cookies but then later on there would be more cookies so I talked to a friend about it and he said it is a virus and that I should ask for help here.
