I have been getting random popups on firefox and windows. Is there any good programs that will help get rid of these problems. All I have for this type of thing is CCleaner and I also use Windows Defender Security.

You might want to check out Malwarebytes Anti-Malware or Spybot Search & Destroy.

Do you have any system restore points created that you could load instead of messing around with trying to disinfect your computer?

Run Windows Defender and the free version of Malwarebytes before you do anything else.

Thanks guys. So far I got all programs installed and I have run the first scan. Hopefully I don't get random pop ups anymore.
