    How to stop Boom3D's popup ad?


    I use Boom3D to enhance the sound on my win10 system. It's a pretty good program.

    Today I was looking at some data from WaPo on COVID, and suddenly a Boom3D ad popped up.

    Besides unwanted and annoying, it's also quite sleazy.

    You can get an idea how sleazy by viewing this page:

    Boom3D, best Volume booster & equalizer for Mac and Windows | Feel the Bass

    But the popup did not appear in my browser (Chrome)'s history.

    Where can I look to block it? I block popups on Chrome.

    This is quite unnerving.

    Using Windows Version 1903 (OS Build 18362.959)

    Well I don't use Chrome but try clearing notifications.

    Allow or Block Website Notifications in Google Chrome in Windows

    So type chrome://settings/content/notifications into Chrome's address bar and press Enter.

    Turn off or block / remove anything you don't need.

    Did all that. I don't ever get popups. This was the first in years.

    And now a Winzip popup:

    How do I find the source of this popup? This is awful. This is from the Winzip Update Notifier.

    I found Control Panel->Task Scheduler->Active Tasks found it there and disabled it (hopefully).

    Well I'm not expert on this but maybe you could try running ADWCleaner free to see what it finds (if anything)?
