    Can you boot into safe mode and run e.g. malwarebytes?

    Worst case you could backup the laptop using e.g. a linux distro or macrium reflect free (create a bootable usb/cd from another computer).

    You installed some adware, it seems.
    MalwareBytes is your best bet. Not to mention, a Windows reinstall won't completely wipe your PC, it'll move your files to a Windows.old directory iirc

    maybe try a bootcd with antivir or something ... depending on whats going on.
    But as you were told above you should try safe mode or sometimes it helps shutting off the w-lan / taking out the network cable

    than you could try to clean the computer or make a backup of your important files.

    another thing you could do is open the task manager and kill any "weird" task that should not be there ... could help for a while and or go into msconfig and look for programms in the auto start and kick most of them if not all ...

    Press F8 when Windows is booting, then select Safe Mode. (Perhaps)

    Regarding Malwarebytes, download it, install it, run it.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    when you turn on the pc, repeatly press f8 you should see a different screen, depending on the windows version you can either see the safe mode option, or a screen where you have to navigate until you find it

    That's why you have to back up your data like I usually does. Always back up your data at all the time.

    Google it.. It can help you like Press F8 and etc. I always do that and helped me through it myself.

    I'm not sure what you have watched to get all the ads pop ups, maybe you should've tried to clean cookies and cache? Do you have anti virus installed?

    Wait until he wakes up.
    Or you could send him a personal message.
