    IDK but this started happening today and I don't know why. I was going on YouTube watching some Fortnite and then I see a ad. It's not your normal Youtube ad, it's the add that covers up your whole screen saying to "download now" or "spin to get _________ dollars" thing. Sometimes it even directs me to Google with a another ad. I tried downloading a virus scanner but it couldn't find anything. If you guys have any insight please comment.

    You may have downloaded an app that has adware. AV apps won't stop or catch these.

    Have you downloaded any Flashlight apps? Anything by "GO" (Go keyboard, Go launcher, etc)?

    Nova doesn't have ads (I think I would have noticed over the years I've been using it). You haven't installed a single other app, game or theme?

    Then it could be a virus, but that sort of thing is usually adware. Try Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and a different anti-virus app.
