If you’re frequently seeing pop-ups and ads or being redirected to web pages you didn’t ask for, you might have unwanted programs or malware installed on your computer.
These pop-ups won’t go away on their own. Serious malware software will change your default homepage and search engine on Chrome.
To avoid these things, you should watch for things that look too good to be true. For example, winning a sweepstake or seeing expensive items for free is sometimes a trick to get you to download malware.
To remove unwanted programs and pop-ups from Windows, open Chrome on your computer and follow the steps below:
At the top right, click More Settings. At the bottom, click Advanced. Under “Reset,” click Reset. Confirm by clicking Reset.
This should reset Chrome and disable all extensions that may have been installed.
Use Google Chrome Cleanup Tool
If the step above didn’t fix the problem, go and download Google Chrome Cleanup Tool from this website and run. Then follow the steps below:
Click Download now. When the file is downloaded, you’ll see it at the bottom. Click the filename (chrome_cleanup_tool.exe). Windows will ask if you want to run the file. Click Run.
The Chrome Cleanup Tool will scan your computer. You’ll see a list of any malicious software found.
Click Remove suspicious programs.
Chrome will open a new tab and ask you to reset your settings. Click Reset.
If the above steps didn’t help, try step 3:
Uninstall Malware from Windows
If all the steps above still don’t remove the unwanted programs and pop-ups, go to the Windows program and uninstall malware software from the machine.
Click Start –> Settings
Then select Apps
Look in the Apps list and remove suspicious programs and software you didn’t install.
In the future, avoid unwanted software by downloading files or visiting sites that you know are secure.
Me enjoying, will read more. Thanks!
STOP THESE ADS (POP-UPS) now OR I WILL LEAVE GOOGLE CHROME…I mean it. They are invasive, stopping me from moving around web sites, distracting me while doing anything online. I did not ask for this and you seem to be behind it…it has your name all over it. Please, do it now! Thank you. Joanne Wolf firstname.lastname@example.org..I will report you!
How do you recover a google chrome browser session after browser reset? Is there a way to do this by date, perhaps, via command prompt?

Very annoying cant read without pop up ads
Ah Google Chrome, the amazinlg useful (for Google) spy tool that allows browser applications to run in the background when the browser is CLOSED and this is the DEFAULT setting.
