Can I suggest changing to Linux? With Firefox.

You can turn off those popups in the browser settings. What browser are you using? Internet Exploder? damned.gif

Or you may have some nasty in there. Run Malwarebytes for instance to scan the computer.

Is it Windows 8 or 8.1? It should definitely be running 8.1 so you may need an update. 13.gif

I don't know where anything is on this mess, I've tried. Clicked on JR's link and got the 'driverstore' with easy credit card payments lmao.gif that loaded some crap on. Kept trying and finally got speedtest. I'm trying both Mozilla and exploder same shït.

Have you tried deleting temporary internet files and clearing the cache? Also deleting cookies> Might help.
