HI All

I was at work the other day and downloaded a free movie ap called 123movies. Now im constantly getting messages from a site called The messagages are from dating sites and a gambling program. The popup say chrome. I went into my apps to see if it could be deleted there, but it doesnt show up. Its not a text message nor an email either. I downloaded Avast mobile security but it didnt do anything.

Anyone have any ideas how i can either delete or at least block these messages?

Its probably notifications from the site. In your web browser of choice (firefox or chrome or both) in the settings somewhere should be a notification setting. You can block sites, or delete approved sites if it's been approved, so they can't send you notifications. It's probably not a virus, just a notification. You can tell easily by this. Does it only show if you have a browser open? If so, then its a notification. Viruses or adware/spyware will pop up all the time on your desktop.

Most recent reason why everyone should be armed at all times:
Charlotte, NC school shooting. 2 killed 4 wounded. April 2019
This was a gun free zone. The shooter didn't care. Gun free zones only hurt honest citizens. If someone was armed there could've been 1 less death.

Then as in Windows 7, click Uninstall a Program under Programs.
