    Hello Rja, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Which pop-ups are these?

    Are these pop-ups in your web browser or Windows?

    Please go ahead and post a screenshot showing this to help.

    Hiya not at home at the moment to do screenshot but I can be on line doing anything,
    And I get Ads about anything with voices as well.
    I was on the phone the other day to BT and the guy took command of my laptop
    And all the time he was trying to sort another problem these ads just kept popping up.

    You may have to do a complete virus scan.
    Boot time scan if possible.

    About a year.

    I got a lot of rep points from people I helped.(A big thank you to all.)

    I am not stingy with giving rep points.
    It makes people feel good to get a rep point.
    Check yours.
