Hi Morgan,

No one likes pop-up notices and advertisements. In your case, it’s difficult to be specific about a solution because fixing this depends on exactly what ads and pop-ups you see on your computer, what they look like, and how they appear.

Because there are so many potential sources for pop-ups and advertisements, we will review some of the most common and hope that one of them will apply in your situation.

Step 1 - Cleaning Process

You should try to install Malwarebytes anti-malware program, which will clean your PC from malware, ad-ware and pop-ups.

Hi Morgan ,

You can scan your computer using the below mentioned tools.

AdwCleaner : It is a free removal tool for Adware (ads softwares) 

Download link: https://toolslib.net/downloads/viewdownload/1-adwcleaner/

You can check and remove the unwanted applications from control panel.

Go to Control Panel (icons view) , and click/tap on Programs and Features and remove the applications you do not recognize.

Then open the C:\Program Files()X86) & C:\Program Files folder, open the program's folder and  remove the remains of the applications .

Revert back if you need further help in removing the applications and if you still have any pop ups Thanks
