Please help me with pop up ads on my PC!

By mach3funk ·
Hello,

Earlier today I was browsing some online forums, I went to register for one forum and for some reason I found myself in an all black page that said "Click "Allow" to register" A pop up from Chrome popped up saying will you allow notifications from this website. Without thinking I clicked allow.

I dont know why I did it but I instantly realise I had been tricked.

Now I am getting pop ups on my PC not only in Chrome but also they come up over 3d applications such as games. This is very frustrating as I have just started a business using this PC and I need it to be in good shape. I did a virus scan and nothing was found I assume all I have done is allowed some website to put pop ups on my PC.

Out of interest the first pop up said "Your PC is infected and tried to get my to click some link" The second pop up was a bit coin advertisement of some sort and the last one I saw was a "She makes $3000 per week and you can too" advertisement.

Any advice about how I can clear and remove this from my system would be great. I really dont want to have to reinstall Chrome if I can help it as I have about 5 email accounts with passwords saved that I have trouble remembering.

Thanks.
