Pop ups I can't seem to get rid of [Closed]

Hi guys,

 

my son's lap top has been getting pop ups he can't get rid of. I've tried but they seem pretty persistent, and beyond my basic knowledge.

 

He's a bit vague about when this started but thinks it may have been from following a link on vipleague.

 

The ads seem to have a vipleague address on them, so that seems likely.

 

His computer still seems to work fine, but obviously the desktop area is pretty reduced with unremovable pop ups.

 

Any help appreciated.

 

Cheers,

Mark

Hi Vandaliser, Welcome to the Geeks To Go malware removal forum.

I am iMacg3 and will be helping you with your computer problems.

Please keep the following information in mind before we begin:
  • Do not run any fixes or tools on your system unless I request that you do so.
    • Running additional tools on your system can interfere with the clean-up process, or cause issues such as false positives.
  • Please read all instructions carefully, and complete them in the order listed.
    • Items that are especially important will be highlighted in bold or red.
  • If your computer seems to start working normally, please don't abandon the topic.
    • Even if your system is behaving normally, there may still be some malware remnants left over. Additionally, malware can re-infect the computer if some remnants are left. Therefore, please complete all requested steps to make sure any malware is successfully eradicated from your PC.
  • If you have pirated or illegal software on your computer, uninstall it now before proceeding.
    • Using pirated/cracked software is an easy way to infect your computer - almost as easy as intentionally downloading malware. Therefore, please remove any, if present, before we begin the clean-up.
  • If you don't respond to your topic in 4 days, it will be closed.
    • If your topic is closed and you still need assistance, send any staff member a Private Message with a link to your topic.
  • If you have questions at any time during the cleanup, feel free to ask.
