I have Win 10 Pro with pop up blocker enabled but am continuously getting pop ups as I surf. I have MBAM and its Anti - Exploit which finds nothing.
Do you have a tip to reduce these annoyances?

I am using Edge which I have grown to like along with Chrome to attend to my android needs. It is Edge that seems to be getting the popups. I'll post when it occurs next.
Thanx for the Adware link. I hoped MBAM would take care of it but it does not have full time protection(free) so it can only find malware not prevent it or pop ups. Defender is full time. I did add Exploit to MBAM. I'll install ADWcleaner now so maybe there won't be any more trouble.
>>I just ran it and there was infection that was removed - two folders deleted and a key deleted. I kept the log file but did not post It for privacy reasons, unless you feel it is appropriate/necessary to do so.
