Few Google Links Opens Ads

Specs: Windows 7, AMD/4GB
For past three days, all of my browsers were slow and google links are opening ads. Also I see lots of ads on any website. I tried cleaning up with AntiMalware but the problem still exists. I also did a boot time scan through Avast. Now the browser is little fast but still the problem persists. Need help in cleaning this up. Thanks.

Ads on websites may be a nuisance but they are not malware, so no malware scanner will help with that. Ads help to pay for running the website so they are a necessary evil, but there is something you can do - read on ....

For Firefox you just need to install an add-on which blocks (most) ads so all you get is an empty space where the ad should be.

For Firefox 11 and higher there is a list of Ad Blocker add-ons here so read the reviews first then choose one: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fi...

They only work with Firefox. I can't help you with other browsers because I never use anything other than Firefox.
