BtNetprotect is an antivirus product and in my opinion not a very good one, so it will not necessarily stop adware.
You do not need to pay to remove malware or adware. You can download and use free products such as Malwarbytes https://www.malwarebytes.org/downloads/ or ADW Cleaner https://toolslib.net/downloads/finish/1/ both are easy to use.
My advice and that of others on the forum would be to uninstall BTNetprotect. It can cause problems on some computers and is a resource hog. Do a search of the forum to see the problems. There are far better free antivirus programs available such as Avast Free and AVG Free.
If you do want to uninstall BTNetprotect use this guide and make sure you use the BTNetprotect/McAfee removal tool after you have restarted your computer.
I will go one step further that gg30340.
There is not much that I pay for software wise on my PC's but one thing I do pay for is a security suite , ie: anti virus/firewall etc. If you do not wish to purchase one then do as gg30340 suggests look at some of the Free ones. Might have to put up with some adverts .
