Hi, I had the same issue. It's caused by a executable in C:Program Files(x86)AvanquestFix it: InAppNotify.exe. Just rename the .exe to .old or for that matter just delete "InAppNotify.exe" and that should put a stop to the ads.

Just got off with VCOM (Fix It Utilities software). They picked me up after 15 seconds and were very helpful. The tech sent me the following:

In order to stop the Pop Ups from Fix It please follow the steps bellow:

1. Browse to C:Program Files (x86)AvanquestFix-It
2. Under the letter I, locate the file named InAppNotify.exe
3. Rename the file to any other name by right clicking it and choosing Rename from the menu that appears. You may need to provide Administrator privileges to do this, if prompted.

Best Regards,
VCOM Technical Support

I renamed the file as no_InAppNotify.exe by just adding no_ in front of the file name.

Good post, but 4 months too late. Do not let that keep you from posting again. We like helpful people here.

Recently I'm getting a popup telling my my Chrome browser isn't protected. It overwrites the screen. I have to close it out to get rid of it. I don't even HAVE Chrome installed. Where would this come from? It's especially annoying when I'm writing and have to be sure to save that and bring it back just in case. Something closed out everything including my word processor.

When I'm writing I disconnect the internet cable now.

Just get "Epic Browser" and popups are a thing of the past. Looks and acts just like Chrome (built on it) but security and blocked pop ups are part of the deal. I do computer repair and it's my "Go To" browser these days
