Solved How can I remove pop up ads every time I open safari

Specs: OS X Yosemite 10.10.3
Can some one please help remove a virus from my Mac book pro. Every time I open safari all these adds come open in a new window and prevents me from looking anything up. I have read some where that I need to uninstall safari but I don't know how to do do this either. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

That behaviour is not caused by a virus infection.
It occurs on all web browsers if you don't take the appropriate action.

Also, some ads are caused by "adware" which has somehow installed itself on your Mac. See this for removal instructions for various types of adware: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT2...
