    Hi,

    Firstly I apologise if this has been answered anywhere before. I only registered for this particular problem.

    Recently I've been hearing advertisements playing even when no programme is running, almost as soon as I start up.
    I've done a disk cleanup, used Malwarebytes Anti Malware and Super Anti Spyware. After the threats they detected and seemed to remove my laptop seemed initially to be running quicker, however it soon slowed down and the audio advertisements continued to play. It really is driving me crazy now.

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Arroyo
