please help folks, This has been happening for a long while now, each time I go online with my windows PC, all sorts of ads pop up all over the screen.

I can't seem to trace the software I downloaded to have caused this. I've tried searching for answers on Google but couldn't get one.

Anyone who can please help to clean up my PC from all these annoying ads.

Try adblock or adblock plus,also download and run malwarebyte to get rid of pup's (possibly unwanted programs).

I assume you have an anti virus programme?

As a start I would download ADWCleaner (from Bleeping Computer) - run a scan and accept recommended clean up - re start.

Then scan with Malawrebytes (see below from Filehippo)

Also, have a look at Ghostery, I find it very useful
