    How To Clean Out Cookies

    I go on the web and search for saw blades, batteries etc etc and now no matter what site I go to, I get an advertisement to buy blades or batteries or whatever I searched for. I have done the cleaning thing plus run CLEANSWEEP but I still get these ads.
    What do I need to do to clean out that junk?

    If the ads are only appearing when you are browsing you may need to clear the cache and settings in your browser. If the ads are appearing when the browser is not open you may have installed an app that is causing it.

    Is the ad a pop-up?

    I would say yes it is a pop-up and it only happens when the browser is open.

    I doubt it has anything to do with cookies. See of this app can help, https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...es.antimalware

    I clicked on the link and got the message "this brouser is no longer supported." I then went to the ap store and downloaded malwarebytes and ran it but it detected nothing and there is no change.

    It sounds like your browser has been hijacked. Go to settings - apps manager and scroll to all. Find the browser you're using, (if it's the blue globe it's just called browser), clear the cache and settings then force stop and restart your phone.
