well im not going to click a potentially malicious link so ill give my generic response and hopefully that will do the trick for you

what antivirus / malware do you have ? if its anything other than avast you may wish to consider changing

if you have any of the below then run them if not download and run

malwarebytes from https://www.malwarebytes.org/mwb-download/

see if that picks up anything

then run junkware removal tool from here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/junkware-removal-tool/dl/131/

then adwcleaner from here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/dl/125/


it has most likely come from some free software you have recently downloaded where you installed something to the toolbar along side it
if the above dont pick up and remove it there are some manual checks that can be done.

then let me know how you get on and we can take it from there.

I am having the same problem. Every morning and maybe a couple more times a day, I get a new tab that shows up saying "Your browser is old and requires an update." The url in the address bar is app.freevideotool.com//netadds......... I think this started a couple of days ago as a result of downloading and running windows-movie-maker-free.exe from http://www.windows-movie-maker.org . I have uninstalled everything that I can think of, but I still get the pop-ups. I checked and there are no browser extensions running that shouldn't be. Any ideas?
