@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.

comment Convert Text File Encoding
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.

Thanks! The second command (the one using iconv) worked. But the first one (using recode) didn't work correctly and the output was still gibberish. Edit your answer to only include the iconv command and I will mark it as the answer.

comment Ubuntu Freezes when Switching to Full-screen VirtualBox VM
@markkirby I doubt that question is related to my issue. That question is for VB-4.3.16 and on a Windows host. Also, the mini-toolbar is disabled in my situation and still the problem exists. Like I said, I'm a regular VB user (almost everyday in full-screen mode) and I had no issues with this VM until this morning.
