pop ups in google chrome



I am getting shopping/advertising pop ups in google chrome, but not in firefox. Is there somewhere in google chrome I can heighten security settings to stop them?

PS It also highlights certain words and phrases in a sentence. E.G If the word "question" appears and I mouse over it, it will show a survey.
Ihave ran malware and deeproot scans but nothing is coming up....

From some of my research, it appears to be some "helpful" extensions that have been installed in Chrome, have a look at the extensions installed and see if there are any you don't recognise.

Thanks Leigh,

Although I only use the basics in google, it seems a relative had d/loaded arcade games without restricting it. and yes there was an extension, deleted it now and all seems well :) x
