Puter broke, so on wife's laptop. An add popped up about a Survey to see how often I used this site and how liked, etc. This from here? Senaro or similar was name on it. Later another add came up, same name, diff add. From here, or just this machine? I just closed the add, didn't offer to try it. Never had pop-ups on my home Pc before this one.

Those aren't from here to the best of my knowledge.
I would say that you have a browser helper object or some other unwanted program.
I would advise malwarebytes anti malware and ccleaner. Superantispyware is another good program.
These are supplemental programs to an antivirus program.

Yep you got spyware. Anti Malewarebytes and Bitdefender are a good combination.  Also uninstall any toolbars you might have down loaded.

Sounds like it is time to do some spring cleaning.  When you're done don't for get to empty the trash.

I noticed I had those until I signed in at top right side of page. I could sign out and see what happens. Yes when I sign out I get adds pop up.

There is a difference between ads showing and ads popping up. There should not be any pop up ads however there are ads that show if you are not logged in. Are these the ads that you guys are referring to that pop up?
