For some reason I am getting news pop up notes appear on the right hand side of my computer screen. I don't recall authorising these and I don't know how to get rid of them. Any advice? Thank you
Thank you Patrick. Under Popups mine did say blocked. But I am still getting these popups :-(Found this....”Enable Chrome's Pop-Up Blocking Feature
- Click on Chrome's menu icon in the upper-right corner of the browser and click on Settings.
- Type "Pop" into the Search settings field.
- Click Site Settings.
- Under Popups it should say Blocked. If it says Allowed, click Pop-ups and redirects.
- Turn off the switch next to Allowed.
Thank you. I found Microsoft News on my Start Menu but not a generic news icon. But the strange thing is I appear to get pop ups from news sources other than MicrosoftDoesn't sound like malware or Chrome popups to me, based on your description. It sounds more like system news alerts. Look here:
I use Avast antivirus. I am not sure how it compares with your one.I use Antivir software. You might like to try it here. The free version is what I use: https://www.avira.com/en/start-down...HNUpuemRxeTdRV2hiZ2NGaENQTFQzNys2SCt0SlJ3bnhJ
Excuse my ignorance but what is an extension? Also how would I check for third part software? ThanksCheck your extensions, so see if somehow, a Chrome extension is active that you can then deactivate or uninstall. Or else it's third part software utilising Chrome somehow
Well I got a good variety of advice above. There were variances in the manuscripts. So I had to decide whether to go with the Majority text, the Critical text or the Received text. The Majority text is an exercise in counting noses and I don't believe the majority is a good way to test truth. I am not critical enough to go with the Critical text, so I thought it best to go with the text safely receivedWell you can't just leave us hanging! What was the issue?
