Now my son's new laptop has pop ups, the avast free one didn't stop it or remove it, I'm sure one is called bubble dock?

Check programs and features if it is listed there and uninstall. Run junkware-removal tool then run Malwarebytes antimalware full scan.

Perhaps Google is your friend. If you put 'bubble dock' into a Google search box, you will find a number of solutions for removal or downloading. Far to many for me to list, but give this a look, as it covers the browser you may have?. click here

Do they show up in Add/Remove programs? If yes then boot into safe mode then uninstall them.

I deleted it from add/remove programs in normal mode yesterday, just started it in safe mode and it is not in the list.

If you mean that the 'pop-up' is still there after you removed the title from add/remove, then you might find that you have added problems for yourself?.

I have a similar issue with a program called 'MySearchDial'. After removing that title via add/remove at the first stage (thinking this was the quickest option), its caused a number of other problems which are not going away. I have installed a number of removal programs (Adwcleaner etc)for 'MySearchDial', and while they find the problem, they do not seem to be able to completely remove, to the point that I have considered a reformat on the machine.

Its got to the stage, were I now wished I had tried other options, before using Add/Remove!.

Another suggestion, if the pop-up is still appearing. If you have CCleaner, Revo or something similar, check to see if Bubble Dock is still listed there. Either in start-up or general program listings?.

The site seems to offer similar solutions that I found elsewhere, but not so comprehensive elsewhere in some cases!.

I found the website this morning from a Google search, and did a quick check, one of which click here

Spuds, have a look here, it shows what files to remove in programs and also what registry keys to remove. Worth trying if you are considering a format and new install.
