Sounds like you have spyware, adware, and maybe even a virus. Try using lavasofts ad-aware personal edition, or spybot search and destroy, or avg anti virus. To get rid of the infection. If that doesn't work maybe try Norton or you might have to re-install windows. Sorry try those and see what you can find. Hope this helps. M~

How to fix computer problems for free


First make certain you have a virus program running and do a full scan. There are free ones around, most use AVG. You can get pop-up blockers, or look at internet options and select block pop ups.

Visit the following website called Black Viper. Follow the instructions and that should speed up your computer.

Running slow pop ups all the time


You more than likely have an infection. The problem is, removing an infection is a lot easier said than done. While your computer is running, so is the virus. And it would be like attempting to delete a picture, while you're looking at the picture. The computer will yell at you and tell you the file is in use. There are tons of guides on the internet as to how to easily remove a virus, but I will give you the short of it. If you don't have any antivirus active protection; Microsoft Security Essentials is free and pretty good. Download and install that. MalwareBytes and Spybot S&D (Search and destroy) are both fantastic at virus removal, but don't have active protection.
Download the three of these, install them, then restart your computer. As it is turning on, press F8 and then navigate to Safe Mode. Run all three scanners (not at the same time, and you might have to restart in between) and your computer should be much better off if this was the case. If this doesn't do much for your situation, at least you now have active antivirus protection.
Lastly you need to be VERY careful about the popups. Many of them advertise that your computer is infected and to buy "their" antivirus software. The problem is, that software is a scam and you will lose your money. And remember when you have big issues like running slow with popups all the time, you can always take it to a local tech shop if you're not comfortable with doing the work yourself. However this kind of repair can cost up to about $200.

Verify that you do not have any helper programs like google toolbar that can also assist with blocking popups. you may want to uninstall any helper programs because they can also slow your computer down.
