Hello, this is Jones. I have been troubled by numerous ads shown on the screen. These ads are supported by SocialHub and pops up randomly. Wherever I am doing, those ads always stop me from visiting normally after I open my computer. I have tried to close them but useless. The × mark seems to be a ornament. Clicking on × is merely a temporary solution because annoying ads will pop up within several minutes. What do you think of the problem? Is there a simple and useful way to remove ads completely? Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Re: Eh, well, I’m not good at fixing the computer. But fortunately, I also encounter the same problem and solve it successfully. Here is the removal guide that you can refer to, good luck to you.
