I had an advertisement pop up on the internet. Am I infected with something?

If you are only receiving popups when you go to certain websites then they are most likely part of the website.You can use a brower like Firefox that is more secure and has built in pop up blocking to reduce the number of pop ups you see from sites. If you are getting the same popups no matter what site you are on then you may have an adware/spyware problem. You can download a free malware scanner such as malwarebytes to scan and remove these kinds of problems. If you continue to have problems after running this program, contact the callcenter (ext. 3333) for further assistance.
