It's your computer problem. I am pretty sure some malicious program is the reason for this. You may need an antivirus to clean up your computer.

Let me know which browser do you use? I use chrome and if you do the same then this might help: https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/stop-pop-ups-chrome

I could not stand the lies against me anymore. I can not prove them wrong too. It's better I live in peace.
So, I am willingly locking mdayonliner. Thank you BitcoinTalk. Be addictive, be a Bitcoiner.

You should probably change any passwords you've typed in recently as well (once you have a virus free browser working).

To be clear, because other's haven't stated it directly, these forums don't have popup ads.

A starting point for you should be to download the free version of Crap Cleaner: https://www.ccleaner.com/

Then check out Malware Bytes: https://www.malwarebytes.com/

And try to remember, which site / downloaded program  was the one that could install that malware/virus on your PC, in order to prevent this kind of attack in the future. It's always better not to fall for any AD that offers something for free (software, money, etc...) because if something looks too good to be true, it's usually not true...

This might be an Adware you are experiencing. If ads are continue popping and creating new tabs and windows it is definitely an adware, you might havw installed it when you have downloaded a program and checked a box in the option of installing it. I have this before and it turns out having a malware cleaner and registry cleaner solves the trick. Don't forget to uninstall and re-install your web browser as well as deleting its folder because there might still be traces of the adware itself.
