Fossil Tech: Pop-ups in Win 8.1 (4) Tech: Pop-ups in Win 8.1 15 Sep 14


Yesterday, I notice that a string of irritating pop-ups had appeared in the "settings" area of my Win 8.1 toolbar. (The one with the gearwheel icon). These are triva headlines, with thumbnail pics, designed to be intriguing. If clicked, these seem to take you to different websites. Seeming harmless, but bloody irritating. And they also seem to hijack the wifi connection and occasionally shut it down.

Anyone any ideas on how to get rid of this? I assume it's some kind of virus, probably acquired from Facebook, but i'd like it gone.
