One computer on my home network had Trend Micro Max accidentaly removed.
After many popups, locking up and running slow, I noticed the mistake and reinstalled the software but now it is constantly having adware popups which full scan does not fix.
What do I do now?

@ahsans @woodartisan55 Thanks for providing these useful suggestions!

Hi @droger, sorry for not getting back earlier.

For your adware question, the reason why it wasn't removed by Trend Micro is it is actually not a malware, though it is invasive and annoying. Here's for your reference:
