I  was on Facebook and saw a recipe i wanted to see, so I clicked on the link given...... Sadly I think it was a bad link because ever since that i keep getting side popouts telling me i have trojans and viruses, and it wants me to download something to get rid of them... at the time I did this I did not have my Avast installed on this computer I just had not gotten to it... my bad. I promptly installed the Avast premium I pay for to this computer.  I seems I did that part ok but when I run the scan it finds nothing/ no virus,  but yet i continue to get the popups constant!!!  Help not sure what to do now.

Hi sasysusie,

Depending on what browser you clicked this in, you have to cleanse your browser of this.


Run AdwCleaner and see what it finds. Get this small tool at
