Hi chaps,

I have tried all sorts of programmes like Malwarebytes,SUPERAntispyware, disabled most add-ins in IE10 but still have the unwanted "ads not by this site come up every time I go to Google.

How do I get rid of them?

I currently run Chrome with no problems however I prefer IE10.

Any suggestions appreciated

thanks

Charles

Hi ,

Thanks John for that but I have already tried this.

I have had to disable all add-ons and they are now gone however will I need any of the add-ons I have disabled?

We cannot read minds or look at your list of add-ons, so we do not know if you will need any of the add-ons you have disabled.

Did you follow the removal instructions? or did you half-heartedly do the job by just disabling them?

Have you tried AdwCleaner?

Also, take a look at:

There's a whole list of apps that might may display those pop-ups. Make sure you don't have any of them installed on your computer.

Ok try Internet Options.Advanced.And press reset, That resets I/E to it's original state and may also get rid of the pop ups.
