Q. I’ve been automatically getting Namechanel.club pop-ups all day, its driving me crazy! I don’t know how to remove them and they pop up at random.
A. It seems that your browser is affected by adware that is causing this issue. I would recommend you to check installed web-browser add-ons and scan your PC for malicious software.
Many users consider adware, PUPs, keyloggers, trojans as the same thing. They are all forms of malware that each behave differently.

Adware software developers can collect and sell your browsing information and behavior to third parties.
