You sure something else isn't running in the background? I don't get those ads at all.

Steam doesn't have ads.

Try scan your PC for viruses, also check your "Program & Features", maybe you have programs that you don't even know, because sometimes "that program" might give you ads.

Dude, that's a virus. Get something like AVG free and scan your computer.

It's no virus, it's adware, and you won't get rid of adware with AVG that gives you even more ads..

Look through your installed programs for stupid program names like funn2savee or whatever.

Note that the programs will likely re-install themselves unless properly cleaned out. I usually do it myself and also use Malwarebytes.
