I have recently purchased a Toshiba lap top running Windows 8. I am being troubled with either pop ups or adverts which appear all the time. I have set the pop up stop level to all, but I regularly get adverts for gambling sites and sexy adverts. Could anyone pleas advise how to get rid Regards Carper

Thanks for your reply. I already run Malwarebytes but I'll try Spyware Blaster as you suggest. Carper
