OK, I've decided to make a post with some common problems (and solutions, that are completly noob proof). If you have a problem that you need solved, PM me. I'll make you a guide and post it here. Also these guides are for Windows only (sorry Mac and Linux) but if anyone wants to offer making some guides for Mac and Linux, I'll happily put them in the first post
1. I keep on getting popups, sometimes when I'm not even in my web browser.
You may have spyware/adware on your computer. There are a few programs you can use to get rid of this. I will show you using Windows Defender (Beta 2) and Ad-Aware SE Personal.
First of all you need to get Windows Defender. You can get it from here
This will bring you to this page
You will then need to validate your genuine copy of Windows. After that you can download the program.
Once you've clicked the appropriate download, a box will pop-up asking wether you want to save or run the file. It doesn't really matter as you'll be running the file in the end anyway.
After you click run a security box will pop-up. Click run, it's safe. AFter that you will just install it like any other program. Select reccomended options in the install process. Once install You will be given the option to run a quick scan and update definitions. Click yes.
You will then be brought to the home page where it is installing updates. It will then run a quick scan.
At the end you will be given a summary of all the items found. Look at each individually, and select an appropriate action.
If you still get the popups you may want to run a full scan.
Ad-Aware SE Personal
It does the same thing as Windows Defender, but it may find things that Windows Defender doesn't. First of all you'll need to get Ad-Aware. Here is a direct link to the program.
Install it like a normal program. After installation run it, and this box will pop up, asking you to update you definitions.
I strongly reccomend that you do so
Then click on scan on the left side of the box, select "Perform smart system scan" and click next.
After that it will run the scan. This will take anywhere from 5-30 minutes.
After the scan has finished, click next. You will be shown all the spyware found. Right click on one of the items, and left click "Select All Objects"
A box will then pop up saying "x objects will be removed" click Next, and they will be removed.
