Some of them are well-known pages like Facebook and Twitter, while others lead to unfamiliar and most likely unsafe sites. Under these links you will see an ever-changing advertisement that is clearly fake. There may also be other ads on it that promote online gaming or shopping sites.

    none of the anti malware programs is able to remove the stamplive adware from my computer. I’m afraid the only solution will be to go back to factory settings.

    I had price minus ads popping up often in all webpages.It was driving me nuts.! I removed an extension from my browser (Firefox). I started deleting the extensions that I knew were not vital. And no more popups! I do have a couple of malware programs, and they too failed to remove these ads. But removing the extensions from Firefox + the add-ons section its what did the trick! I also did the same thing to google chrome browser, I deleted some add-ons, and extensions as well.
