That is a typical botnet ppi install.
You have installed any Chrome extension that does this, or maybe you have installed any windows plugin or you have been infected with a kind of malware that shows you ads everywhere...
Just take a look what have you done recently and you can find the problem...
Ok i found it.. it was one of 2 things running in my system tray that didnt belong
i uninstalled both with the names webcake and delta.. something
after that it was gone, then i also installed adblock crome extension after it was mission.
i have windows firewall, i have windows defender and this free Avira Antivirus that has its own ads.. lol
So glad its gone
monetize ad space
I am a qualified technician, that is what is called adware.
Adware is malware that tracks what you do using spyware then displays ads to you.
The type you have displays them in your browser. Very common.
1. uninstal all applications that seem supicious and applications that you do not use very often.
2. click on the start menu at the bottom left of your desktop. Then click run. Type msconfig. Press enter.
3. when there go to the services tab. Tick the hide microsoft services box. Turn off all the services that you do not need to run when your computer starts, this will also speed your computer up.
4. go to the next tab called startup, disable everything except programs from your computers manifacturer, microsoft and you antivirus provider. Nothing else needs to start up, this will also speed up you computer.
5. Install ccleaner(google it, piriform make it.) Run registry cleaner and the normal cleaner. This will remove the temporary files created by the adware.
6. Update your antivirus, by opening your antivirus and clicking update. When completed restart your computer.
7. Run windows updates, and java updates, adobe updates each will make your computer more secure.
8. Restart again.
9. Run a complete Virus scan using your antivirus.
10. Install malwarebytes and update it, restart.
11. Run a scan with malwarebytes.
That's it all the adware should be gone.
lol u got owned if i was u id change all my passwords and use linux!
Time to reformat.
By your comment it's clearly you have no idea what you're talking about.
As Cazual said, you really don't know what you are on about.
I use Linux but I make sure that my machine is secure, which means yes you can get owned even on a Linux machine.
Something tells me that if your are using a Linux machine, check your network traffic and look out for anything out of the ordinary, because you really have no clue what you are on about. Going to Linux will, yes of course drop the chances of you getting hacked but that is because of the user base(I know websites use Linux alot.). But there is not much money to cyphen out of Linux users nor is there much fun because there is not a lot of them.
Posted using a linux machine.
