My web browser is accidentally full of many ads today when I open it. I don't remember what I have downloaded or done yesterday. I scan the computer and it reports me a threat named Adware:win32/adpeak. But I cannot stop ads though I remove the detected virus. I need help!

It could be a Trojan that can hijack your web browser as well. You can try
Restart the computer in Safe Mode
Uninstall any suspicious programs in Control Panel
Open the web browser and clear all cookies and add-ons
Run registry editor and delete malicious files

It could be a much stubborn and nasty computer virus. You may need to do it manually. But I know little about computers as well and kindly recommend that you turn to computer experts ASAP. :)
