How do I remove pop up ads from Edge?

How do I remove pop up ads from Edge?

Hi Angelica. I'm Greg, an installation specialist and 9 year Windows MVP here to help you.

What types of ads are these? Is the pop-up blocker set in Edge Settings > Advanced Settings > Block Pop-Ups?

If they're ad popups then Run a full scan with the most powerful on-demand free scanner Malwarebytes: In the Scan Settings first set it to include scanning for Rootkits.

Clean up anything found, restart PC and then run again until it comes up clean.

Check for any remainders in Settings > Apps > Apps & Features, and also in each of your browser's Extensions, Home Page settings, Search service or Add-On's as shown here:

Then check for damaged System Files:
If it cannot repair them see Step 10 here to continue:

If you want to keep Malwarebytes as an on-demand scanner then you can turn off its Real Time trial version in it's Settings > Account Details tab.

If these are notifications then those are controlled in Windows Settings > System > Notifications, scroll down to choose which apps you want notifications from.

You can also control Mail app Notifications in Mail Settings > Notifications.

I hope this helps. Feel free to ask back any questions and keep me posted. If you'll wait to rate whether my post helped you, I will keep working with you until it's resolved.
