Windows 7: Popup ads coming up when clicking too close to right edge of screen

Popup ads coming up when clicking too close to right edge of screen

Something has gotten onto my Windows 7 PC, when I click too close to the right edge of the screen, an ad pops up, usually from the same company, but sometimes from other companies.

How can I get rid of it, as it is very annoying?

[1] Run a FULL AV [Anti-Virus] system scan.
[2] Download and run Malwarebytes [FREE] => Malwarebytes.

I hope this helps!

I ran my anti-virus program and I have Super Antispyware, but that doesn't solve the problem.

Malwarebytes is free to try for 14 days, then you have to buy it. It is not free. :-(

The full Malwarebytes for Windows is free for 14 days and then it reverts to a cut down version, which is FREE and still worth having!

I hope this helps!
