Malwarebytes and AdwCleaner are two good starting points - run them both in the order given

https://www.virustotal.com/en/domain...m/information/

You should also check your IPv4 DNS servers
- record the existing addresses, then
- set them to Google public DNS servers
8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4

There are some other manual steps that I suggest, but let's see what Mbam and AdwCleaner do.

I have a link to MBAM in my sig, de-select the 30 day trial when you install it.
What is the site you get the popup, or popunder, from?
There are a lot dodgy sites that always want you to update this or that (crap) or install some player or another. Fake virus scan which will warn you that you have an infection, also crap.

I tried a full scan on malwarebytes, and that did not work either.

Please elaborate on that did not work either. The program didn't download, it didn't run, it didn't find anything?

You might have to run the malware scanners in Safe mode.
See Safe Mode
OPTION TWO: Through System Configuration (msconfig)

See what AdwCleaner can tell you. If you want good help, you need to provide good feedback. Error messages, failure points, post utility output, post screen shots.... etc., etc., etc.
