Welcome to SevenForums

So far, the best way is to do the usual: Scan your whole computer for viruses.

If it has found one, review the results before deleting them, as if it may be your important file of the sort.

Also, when does it appear? If it appears randomly, try disconnecting your network connection for a while.

The most important thing is to find out where it is from. Did it come from a recently installed app? Some application installers do advertisements by recommending users to install other apps (e.g. iLivid, TubeYouDown, CleanerCleaner).

So yeah, the best thing that you can rely on is your Antivirus. Scan, Review, Delete.

Let us know if your problem persists.

Well yea, I scanned my PC and nothing, however when I open the file it puts me on Yahoo page with details about in this case sports (basketball if I click on basketball). Also, I was checking my files and I can't find any unknown file that could make this, it appears rarely and it doesn't affect any of my PC functions.

Do you have the Yahoo! Toolbar, or any of that type of stuff on there? Check your browser add-ons, too.

I would look closely at the settings in there and see if there is something designed to "help" you which you can turn off.

I really don't have any adds or anything, I mean I can show you if you don't believe me. I experienced similar ads but on the actual browser and never on desktop like this.

Did you just upgrade JAVA, I believe that is the one that wants you to add yahoo settings. Of course you should never just accept defaults on thees guys ad un-select that junk. My 2 cents
