How do you block pop ups that show on the side of the screens?
I recently purchased a new computer with the HD screen. Now I have different advertisements show on the side of the viewing screen and some actually cover part of the viewing screen. I do have the pop up blocker on for Mozilla Firefox. I did not have the problem with this issue on my old computer. How do I get rid of the advertisements from showing on the side of the screen, or showing up at all?

hello adamlybrand, you have various malicious addons present. please try these steps:
- reset firefox (this wil keep your bookmarks and passwords)
- afterwards go to firefox > addons > extensions and in case there are still extensions listed there, disable them.
- finally run a full scan of your system with different security tools like the free version of malwarebytes and adwcleaner to make sure that adware isn't present in other places of your system as well.
