Computer Probems - Help!

I just had to delete the post that I just put up.  After I posted it I went to check it like I try to always do..There were highlighted words that I didn't highlight and when I clicked on them it went to some advertisement. So, I went to edit and hurried and changed the word to something else to get rid of it.  Went back and checked and other words were highlighted..this is really frightening.

Yesterday all sorts of ads started popping up all over any place that we went...hubby worked and worked on it to no avail.  Norton says we have no problems, but this is huge..I can't even post on that computer..I am using my laptop right now.  I will go ahead and re post but will probably have to go to tech help or something..I don't even know what this is.

Have any of you had this problem with these popups...and I'm not talking just regular pop ups..these are like monsters on the top and bottom and sides and they change to different ones and if you click them off a new one comes up..

I'm not pleased...this is my birthday and sure didn't plan on doing THIS today.

Thanks for any help.   xo

There is a great free program called Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and it is really good for viruses on your computer.

I have had that happen on our laptops before and all it takes is one link, one click, anywhere on the internet with that virus and it will take over your whole computer.

You can download the above mentioned program for free, through this link which is safe:
