removing pop ups

How do I remove the annoying pop ups that come up constantly on the side of the screen?

Re: removing pop ups

When are you getting the pop-ups (browsing etc.) and what do the pop-ups say?

 

Are you referring to Windows 10's Action Center notifications?

 

Have you scanned with a good antivirus/malware program to ensure you do not have some adware running on your system?

 

Best of luck,

They pop up on the bottom right of my computer screen no matter what I’m doing (working in Word, using google Chrime (popups are disables there). It tells me what emails I have and also gives me ads.

Re: removing pop ups

Well if it is telling you that you have email, then it is something that you installed and gave permission to access your inbox.     

 

Whose email service are you using?

 

Right-click on Start and select Task Manager, and select the Startup tab (if you don't see any tabs, click on "more details" in the lower right)

 

Look through the enabled startup items for any program that might be associated with your email and disable to see if that solves your problem.
