Dealing with tricky malware

So about 3 months ago i noticed random popups starting to appear even when browser was minimized or closed, i ignored it because it only happened like twice a day. It has become more frequent now and any search of malware/adware or attempt to download anti-malware programs results in a force closing of the whole browser.

I tried downloading malwarebytes on a laptop then transferring the installation files via USB but whenever i try to open that file it closes after i choose the language.

any help is appreciated

Try AdwCleaner... run it in safe mode and without Internet access.

Doesn’t work because everytime a page with certain keywords (ie. malware, adware) is opened the whole browser is closed. Ive tried this with every browser and its the same.
