I have been getting video and "survey" pop ups for the last month. How can I get rid of them! They come up every time I'm on the internet. Driving me crazy!
Hello and Welcome
This sounds like either a malware problem or a PUPs problem. My recommendation in both cases would be the same. I would recommend that you pay a visit to one of the free malware removal sites that we recommend to users of Norton products. You didn't mention what Norton product you use and what version it is.. You also didn't give any information about your computer.
Please visit one of these sites and register with them. They will work with you on a 1 to 1 basis in the proper environment. Here is my macros for the sites.
Please go to one of these free Forums for help in removing your bad malware or rootkits.(Thanks to Delph for providing the list of sites)Please see this link for an up to date description of these sites plus the addition of a newly listed site formed by one of our successful malware remover users. The new site is listed first in this link.http://community.norton.com/t5/Tech-Outpost/Malware-Removal-Forum-Recommendations/m-p/1060209#M8608
Please come back and let us know how you make out. Thanks.
