Hello! This week some pop-up ads have been worrying me. I did not have any pop-ups ads until now and did not allow websites to send notifications and my allowed website notification list in Chrome was only mandatory chrome websites. But a week ago some ads with explicit content started showing up(in Chrome browsers). I checked the notification settings in my Chrome and everything was fine… But the problem did not solve. So I restored default settings in advanced settings of Chrome. But even then the problem still was not solved.
And also I noticed that the “sender” of these pop-ups are websites that I am currently visiting. For example, if I am watching videos on Youtube, then on the top of the popped-up window youtube.com would be written. IF I want to close them and press “X” button, then I am redirected towards these malicious websites, something like notification/tubecap/net or poisism/com(dots instead of slashes) I figured, maybe malware was installed in my computer and the pop-up ads were not disappearing because they were in my computer. (but they are seen only in browsers)
So, I did a scan with Dr. Web and McAfee but they did not find anything suspicious. And after that downloaded Bitdefender and did a scan too. But it did not find anything.
I need to get rid of these pop-up ads(it’s not urgent but the sooner the better). So are there any solutions? Can I solve this on my own? Or should I contact a professional technician?
P.S. i have my antiviruses and web advisor running and doing regular scans
