    Melissa,
    I offer a bet that your computer is infected with PuPs.
    Remove them with AdwCleaner (ONLY from here!)

  12. PuPs?

    @epzcaw:

    From what I gather here your computer is likely full of PuPs. And since you use it always the same way it gets regularly re-infected (shocked? please keep reading).
