    Edge hijacked by advert


    Looking through news on Sky, I had an advert for antiwrinkle cream appear and stop me shutting down Edge. I went to task manager and shut down Edge, that didn't work, so I restarted W10 and as soon as I opened the browser it was back, I then shut down Windows and on restarting, it was still there. What is the correct way to get rid of these jerks? Malwarebytes did not find anything.

    :)

  2. my edge browser is being hijacked by some kind of pop up. How do I disalbe it?

    my edge browser is being hijacked by some kind of pop up. How do I disable it? Seems to be whenever I use a site with adverts. It varies form an alert that my system is being attack to adverts for PC solutions.

    Hey follow these steps:

    Go to run and type in Google

    when edge opens up close the previous tab

    and reset all settings for edge

    PS: Scan your PC for any malware / spyware infections. And also update the antivirus database via updates.

    Please post the results of the steps performed

    This has hi-jacked your browser.
    Simple answer is disconnect your router, this breaks the connection, restart computer and delete page, then reconnect your router, then restart.
    You can do an anti-virus scan afterwards but these page high-jacks once broken are harmless.
