Unwanted popups

Unwanted popups

(OP)
Suddenly, today I started receiving a popup ad for justcloud.com. I can delete it with the X in the upper right corner but it reappers when the next email is opened. I tried to put it on a blocked list but that doesn't stop it. Any solutions?

RE: Unwanted popups

Remove whatever browser hijacker your machine is infected with would be the first thing to do.

RE: Unwanted popups

What email client do you use or is it web-based? When does the popup happen - ONLY when you are using email or when you are browsing without email being open? And then, does it spawn a browser session or new tab on its own?

I'd run this: Link

"Living tomorrow is everyone's sorrow.
Modern man's daydreams have turned into nightmares."

Thanks ChrisHirst, I just removed several files suggested by AVAST and the popup has not come back.

Run what I mentioned though, please. It will find things that you don't know are there.
