Russian pop ups with counters and middle of the screen ads that are no longer clickable

Recommended Posts

Hello, I've been having real big issues with browsing, and its not recent. My AV is Avast Free right now.


Many websites I am greeted with this ad, it grays out the rest of the screen which is unresponsive until its closed, by clicking on X, which will usually open a new window with russian junk.


They sometimes vary in size and shape, more square, more rectangular, bigger on the Y or X axis.
Not that often a russian popups on the top of the screen, bottom right or bottom, containing a counter, when it goes to 0 a "X" for closing appears and I can close it.
Now, that gray out middle ad I just showed you is malfunctioning, I can't ever close it, so I gotta click stop on the browser in order to use the page, or else I'm forever stuck in that grayed out screen.
I got MalwareBytes, and once it's on, webpages rarely open and I get prompts from it ALL THE TIME saying a Malicious Website was blocked from svchost.exe. Once I saw .ru wbsite blocked too. Anyways, using the internet with Malwarebytes on is impossible, can't be done.
I must point out that this started happening as soon as I installed Windows 10, I fixed problems when I had windows 7, then I switched to 10 and as soon as it started, these viruses were in, probably coming in from my other hard drives.
Thanks for the attention.
