Q: How do I get rid of automatic audio-play ads that come on in the background - no popups in sight This thread is locked from future replies

Suddenly getting lots of automatic audio-play ads coming on - mostly for household cleaning products, though some for vehicles.  There is nothing on the screen or in Task Manager to indicate where these are coming from.  Have run Microsoft Malware programs and nothing found.  Appreciate any suggestions.  Many thanks.





Check your add/remove programs in the Control Panel and uninstall any programs you aren't aware of. Next check your Start up folder. Press Winkey + R and type MSCONFIG then go to the Start up tab and look for any suspicious programs starting up uncheck the ones you aren't sure of.

Also here is a good link with lots of different ways to rid your computer of Malware.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
