Internet pop ups

Postby sduthie13 » Thu, 23 Oct 2014 4:34 pm

Can anyone recommend a good pop up blocker for internet usage. I've never experienced such an onslaught of unwanted pop ups while surfing the net here!! (Nothing too technical please!) it's driving me nuts, every time I try to do the simplest search it takes forever!

Your computer is infected with malware. Start with malewarebytes to fix.

Use adblock plus and noscript in your browser, lets face it, this is where the malware comes from mainly.

If you are really infected with a load of nasty stuff already, you may opt to rebuild your PC as no program can pick up 100% of malware, who knows what's on there, this is the only sure fire way to completely clean your PC.
