Pop ups driving me crazy!
« on: March 05, 2014, 02:58:14 AM »
About a month ago, I started getting pop ups.  Avast user interface says all shields are active and Avast is up to date. One small pop up says "arcadefrontier advertisement" at the bottom. The full screen one comes up with something like; "srvt..." Any help would be appreciated.

Are they advertisments or is it one of the sheilds blocking something located at a certain place?

A screenshot would help.

That is the  " arcade frontier virus"  actually a nuisance "PUP"

Running ADW Cleaner , then Malwarebytes  removes it .
