Exclamation Windows 10 Showing Random Popup Ads

Hello Team,

I installed windows 10 recently and I am getting many pop up ads recently. I didn't install any software recently too. Can someone Suggest me how to bypass them. Thanks in advance.

What I did is just opened these sites

Do let me if there is anything wrong in those sites and suggest me best anti virus or anti malaware tools.

Welcome to CTH

Windows 10 does not need ant-virus/malware as it is built into Windows Defender. Right click start>control Panel>Defender and make sure it is active. If you are getting pop ups run Windows Defender. Also run a free program called Malwarebytes.

I have edited your link as it could give someone malware.

Thanks Murf for your help and I tried this and it's not getting removed. I have downloaded few other anti malawares and anti virus but nothing helped me.

Kindly once check the 4th and 5th site in the below link and there is no virus in this link. Please keep this link until my problem gets solved. Someone might have faced this kind of issue and I am not interested in rebooting my system at all.

Thanks and hope you understand.

I understand the links you are posting are advertisement nothing pertaining to computer problems, we consider this SPAM.

If YOU REALLY have malware/spyware then post in our Malware Removal Forum

Continue posting irrelevant sites/links you will disappear from this forum.

if you are still getting ads, please follow the previous advice about posting in the malware section.

Being a wise guy, and knocking people who try to help other people is a great way to get help the next time you need it.
