    Pop-ups etc.

    My wife, who should know better, had a pop -up appear that said the flash drive needed to be updated. She clicked OK, now we have multiple problems-advertising Pop-ups, music, difficulty in opening email attachments, etc. Are we sunk? Will we have scrub everything & start from scratch? Thanks in advance.

    Check for a restore point.

    Also download and run Malware Bytes Anti Malware Free.
    Do a scan with your anti-virus program as well.
