Close out of the browser though Task Manager. Also Chrome has an option to prevent pop up boxes from coming up. After you close out of your browser, do a scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Just to be safe.

Did you or did you not remove the PUP's?

Once those PUP's are removed and it was my computer I would run this little free program from Bleeping Computer site.
