    I have a Droid Turbo which sometimes gets these annoying popups whenever I try to follow a link. A couple of the ones that I have received are below. How do I get rid of them? My antivirus didn't find any spyware. Thanks.

    That is a result of an app.

    delete the browsers cache in settings - apps, or try a different browser and see if you still get them.
