I think it's a kind of computer malware. Do you scan your computer with your antivirus? Does it find out anything dangerous in your system?

I'm using AVG free antivirus, but it could not find any malware in my system. I have run many full scans.

I think your pop-up ads are caused by adware programs and PUPs (potentially unwanted programs). They appear to be common computer programs, so your antivirus does not recognize it a risk. Can you tell me what browser is getting pop-ups?
