Q. Yesmovies pop ups help. Just started yesterday I believe. I started getting unwanted pop-up ads on my desktop, on the web browser I’m running. I cannot do anything! I’ve searched the World Wide Web on this. I also believe it is adware software. I have scanned for adware software with anti-virus. Nothing is finding it. Somebody can you help me please.
A. If you are experiencing numerous advertising pop-ups, trips to webpages you did not intend to visit, then most likely that you’re a victim of adware (sometimes called ‘ad-supported’ software). Adware software can cause many troubles such as intrusive ads and pop-ups on your web browser, redirect your search requests to advertising web sites, internet browser crashes and slow loading web sites. Adware usually gets installed as a part of some free programs. Do not be surprised, it happens, especially if you’re an active Net user.
Another reason why you need to remove adware is its online data-tracking activity. Adware can collect your user info such as what web-sites you are opening, what you are looking for the Internet and so on. This personal info, later, may be transferred third party companies.
