This may be caused either by a general clogging of the OS by unwanted tools or by conflicts among advertising tools and helpful software.

In case of seeing any of the above symptoms – you know what to do. Do not mediate on checking your process manager by hand, or to install a trusted antivirus and scan the machine.
