Windows 7: How do i get rid of pop unders that keep coming on my comp

How do i get rid of pop unders that keep coming on my comp

I also have them coming on the side. I am afraid i'm going to get RSI trying to get rid of them all the time. I want to do it the safe way however, as I don't want to get rid of one problem and latch on to another.

Also my sticky notes seem to have disappeared and when i try and install new ones there are always problems, is there any solution without the problems?

thanks in advance.

Hello RituAnand51 , whew.. long name.. sounds as if you may have malware.. and may not use free addon's , like adblock plus.. check your antivirus.. use free of these two programs.. Malwarebytes. and SuperAntiSpyware . and if clean.. run your SFC program from the tutorial section. If you need links.. I can get them for you..

Hi Ritu,

Did you made any changes on the PC recently? Sticky notes can be found here C:\Windows\System32\StikyNot.exe. You can execute them.

As mentioned by Yard Dog, run Malwarebytes to scan for malwares. Run antivrus, and do SFC / SCANNOW to check for any errors.

Thanks for all your advice. Can I run any of these programs with Microsoft Security Essentials. And i hope i dont land up with other unwanted stuff on my comp if i use either of these programs.
