Too Many Pop-ups

Dear Computer Lady,

Thank you for all your help in the past, here is another problem. Pop ups, they have infultrated my computer. I can’t even order anything without another website suddenly taking over. I’m exasperated over this problem that is only getting worse.

I subscribed to a service to eliminate pop ups but it costs $10 monthly which I had to stop because it was too expensive for me to continue. Hope you can help me.

Thank you, Juliet

Dear Juliet,

It sounds like you might be infected with some malware, and that is what is causing all the pop-ups.

I would suggest you take your computer to a local repair shop for a good tune-up. If you live in the area, give me a call and we can schedule a time for you to bring it in.

Malware often installs all kinds of unwanted advertising so that the authors can make money off your web searches.
