    Advertisements playing at random times


    Hello,
    I am new to the forums website and my computer keeps playing ads, I tried to "x" everything out and it still plays every 7 minutes or so. This has only been going on for 2 days and I've deleted everything that I downloaded in the past 2 days, they keep playing. Can you please help me?

    Obviously, you were infected with some sort of malware/adware/potential unwanted programs(PUP) during some recent download or installation. Deleting whatever it was that you downloaded will not remove any tag-along stuff. I highly recommend that you download and install the Free Version of Malwarebytes and scan with this.
    Malwarebytes | Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free
    If this does not remove all unwanted stuff there are other programs available but start with this one. Be sure to select the Free Version and not the Trial Version of the Paid Product.

    gator2013,
    I have the software now, I deleted the viruses they detected. Do I delete the Quarantine because I've been doing that for the past 2 hours. What do I delete? Can you give me a guide on what to do? Also I delete all of my viruses and I still get the virus and I tried to clear my downloads even though you said not to I thought it would be useful. Please help me!
