I know that there is a lot of information about this maddening popup online, but first I must say that it must be a virus and I need to permanently eliminate it or, if it is not the above, whatever it is that has been slowing, stopping, and crashing my word processing, email, and online use ALL DAY LONG!!
I could go on forever, since nothing has made me angrier. But I want you to believe that I am not exaggerating even a little. It can take three to five to nine clicks on every other action, not to mention the full or partial crash that happens two to three times every hour.
I swear I am not exaggering.
I have installed nearly every sngle ad, popup, malware, and other such blockers that the Chrome Store has to offer. I know that one of them -- is it Ad Blocker Pro? u Blocker? -- has permantely prevented this "data:text" popup from ever opening 100% all the way, though it still fights me and sometimes opens 75% to 90% to 99%.
But it still fights me on every other click, if, again, it's the same popup that's creating this virus-like havoc. Also, the very first click after I open the computer in the morning, or after a crash, is always a 100% successful popup, though it's never the "data:text" one; it's always something like "Speed Tracker" or some other nuisance one.
I think that you all know where I'm going -- I've got to get my computer clean again, fresh and fast, smooth running, virus and nuisance free. No lie. I've got 20 or more of those anti-nuisance apps, but obviously they are limited in their potency.
What to do? I've got maybe 30 bookmarks -- is that effecting my user experience? Is it something else?
Any and all help would be appreciated no end. But I need to be able to have a normal computer experience again. I just don't know what caused this but it's unreal. Help, please!
