@Zacharee1 I see them in several sites, but not all. Also I changed to another router to connect to the Internet and nothing changed; the ads still come up.

@Zacharee1 I don't have Google Chrome installed, only Chromium, which I haven't opened lately and I haven't checked its plugins. But in Firefox I checked the plugins list and I didn't notice anything suspicous. Yes, by searching I also only found Windows related topics.

@Mateo I checked the network settings and I'm on 'No Proxy'. I also checked the /etc/hosts file and all seemed normal.

@Zacharee1 Nothing unfamilar there either. The last installations were on Monday. But I'm seeing these, since this morning.

I wrote a useful script based on the working command which I have explained in another answer here. I hope it will help other Persian Linux-users as it help me a lot.

comment Invalid Partition Table
I guess your problem is the same as the question you cited. If you have access to another Linux machine try the dd command mentioned there.

Also to be free of the LANG variable setting, one can do: iconv -f WINDOWS-1256 -t UTF-8 in.txt > out.txt which I tested and worked. So it may be a good idea to edit your command like this.
