    Hello! This week some pop-up ads have been worrying me. I did not have any pop-ups ads until now and did not allow websites to send notifications and my allowed website notification list in Chrome was only mandatory chrome websites. But a week ago some ads with explicit content started showing up(in Chrome and in Yandex browsers). I checked the notification settings in my Chrome and everything was fine, and also checked settings in Yandex. But the problem did not solve. So I restored default settings in advanced settings of Chrome and in Yandex, too. But even then the problem still was not solved.
    And also I noticed that the "sender" of these pop-ups are websites that I am currently visiting. For example, if I am watching videos on Youtube, then on the top of the popped-up window youtube.com would be written. IF I want to close them and press "X" button, then I am redirected towards these malicious websites, something like notification.tubecap.net or poisism.com. I figured, maybe malware was installed in my computer and the pop-up ads were not disappearing because they were in my computer. (but they are seen only in browsers)
    So, I did a scan with Dr. Web and McAfee but they did not find anything suspicious. And after that downloaded Bitdefender and did a scan too. But it did not find anything.
    I need to get rid of these pop-up ads(it's not urgent but the sooner the better). So are there any solutions? Can I solve this on my own? Or should I contact a professional technician?
    P.S. i have my antiviruses and web advisor running and doing regular scans

    Hello! Dr.Web and McAfee WebAdvisor were running, but after pop-up ads started showing up I installed BitDefender and scanned my computer, while installing BitDefender it deleted other antiviruses. I posted the topic in bleeping computer com recently so I am seeking the answer there. Thank you for your help!
