At first, in your browser, press CTRL + SHIFT + DELETE. In the next window that comes up, choose "delete cache and cookies" too.

Next: if you don't have it yet, download "Your Un-installer Pro", from here:
http://games4theworld.org/downloads.html


Install it and run it. In the next window, check the list of installed programs, and see if you notice anything strange. If you see stuff that you didn't install, then it could be those unwanted programs. Double-click on each item and then choose "Super Mode". Follow the instructions until the end.

Before you ask: no, I cannot tell you "the names" of those programs that you should be looking for, unless I do it myself in TeamViewer. You should basically look for stuff that is unknown to you, and that already should say enough.

After you removed all these things with Super Mode, re-boot the computer. After the re-boot, re-start the browser and see if anything changes. If not, download and install "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware" (also from the site above). Try the "flash scan" and "complete scan" too. It might take a while to complete, but the program is really good.

Keep us posted, and good luck.

Thanks carlos

after trying your suggestion, it improves a lot. not all sites get that adware
but ocasonally,it still appear. not always as before. now just ocasionally.

here I bring the screenshoot when it appear



it appear just occasionaly.so it still annoying.especially when it play video itself

then I do googling to found cyrii uninstall. I found the solution, it just using add or remove program . but this does scare me, as I didnt found cyri on add or remove program. I also didnt find it on your uninstaller,or revo uninstaller I currently used

there are option to download their uninstaler.but i affraid this would made things worse..

what should I do ? thanks Smile

And did you already use "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware" ?

Another good program that I use is "Spybot Search & Destroy" (google for it, it's free). You might want to do a scan with that too.

well this happens when you are browsing sites which need you to download something or sign up it installs a spyware don't worry its not a big deal but those things are the ones that brings ads in the first place i know that sometimes they become annoying but you have to make sure what you are downloading since some of them just gather information about you and sells this information for companies

Yes, what I didn't ask before: are you using an adblocker for your browser ? If not, please download an adblocker. Smile  Of course, after you made sure you "cleaned up" on your computer.

Did you use the "flash scan" method in Malwarebytes too ? Also, press the Windows key + R and type msconfig. Hit enter. Now, look for an option somewhere that says "safe boot", and mark the option "minimal". Click on OK, and re-boot.

After the reboot, you will notice that the desktop background is black, and that the resolution of your display is lower. This is called "safe mode". There, re-start Malwarebytes and do another scan.

There is also the possibility to create CD with the latest virus definitions, in many anti-virus programs. And then you boot the computer from the CD, but I haven't done that myself. And I don't think that this is really necessary for 99% of the people. Sure, it's the best method probably, but not really necessary in my eyes. I think Spybot also has an option to create such a CD, but I can't tell for sure.

Thanks for all your support.

Last time I try using again,malware bytes, and spybot .on safe mode. They found something. and after I remove, my browser didnt work well ( always crash for few minutes, and often freezing) .so I decided to reinstall both chrome and mozilla frefox.

now I didnt see those kind of ads anymore

thanks a lot Smile
