Windows 7: Help getting rid of "Roll Around" adds in Chrome

Help getting rid of "Roll Around" adds in Chrome

Yesterday I started getting pop-up adds that say they are powered by "Roll Around" inside of Chrome.

AddBlockPlus will not stop them.

They pop up at the very top of EVERY google search and they fly in from the side on almost EVERY website.

My pop-up blockers are not stopping them.

As far as I know, I didn't change any settings so I don't know why they are all of the sudden everywhere!

Searching google for how to get rid of them doesn't bring up anything.

Anyone know what to do?

You most likely picked up some malware...
What do you use for security ?

Review Jacee’s instructions to run Adwcleaner here post #7,
Ignore the title of the thread,
Screen shot of the download button to use for Adwcleaner
You can use these free tools to see if they find anything,
Manually Update them before running full scans,
Try not to use your computer while the scans are running, (one at a time of course).
See this tutorial on how to download and run Malwarebytes,

Also use the Custom scan option not the Threat scan,
Please Do Not clean/ Delete or Remove Any detections before posting the scan results first before review especially Malwarebytes,
SAS is safe to remove anything it finds
This one is the longest up to 4 hours, the others are only about 45 minutes,

Thanks for the tips. I'll run some of those.

I was able to figure out that it was a program actually installed on my machine. Must have hitched a ride with something else I downloaded.

I was able to remove it with add/remove programs.

Mostly, to break into your computer, Roll Around program would bundle with some other free programs. Once you forget to uncheck its installation option, Roll Around will get installed on your system at the same time.(Quoted from Step by Step to Get Rid of Ads by Roll Around Pop-up |

So be careful when you install a new software next time

1 Chrome window (1 tab), but 12 "chrome.exe *32" in Task Manager!
When I launch Chrome, I find 10 to 12 "chrome.exe *32" processes running in the background and the laptop can get pretty slow. Chrome regularly displays "Not responding", as the laptop struggles to process what should be a simple opening or closing of a tab. This is what I have at the...
