How many times does it seem we are browsing on the internet and click on a website or article and boom another pop-up window comes up? Then we have click out of it until perhaps another one appears. What can we do to stop this mess once and for all?
Not only are pop-ups annoying, pop-up blockers are freely available in most web browsers. When is the last time you read a pop-up or pop-under ad? When one squeaks by my pop-up blocker I immediately close it without a second thought.
One thing that we should look to avoid is the system error and spyware infection ads. These ads will confuse many visitors and make them go away. These ads pop-up in your face with a message like “your computer is infected with spyware – click here for a free scan”. These ads don’t know anything about the user’s computer; they are just trying to trick them into purchasing an inferior product. There are also “innocent” pop-ups with the sole intention of getting you to a website to sell a product.
However, what you need to be aware of is that these can be of a malicious variety. These install adware onto your computer without your knowledge or consent. Now how annoying can that be? This can cause your computer to “freeze” and sometimes you may not have a choice and just reboot your computer at that time.
Buying a pop-up blocker can be a very effective way to stop both the annoyance the danger. There are free versions out there on the internet, but it is advised to go with a trusted paid service. They will have more updated software to ensure your continued safety.
Paid software can help get rid of the pop-ups that come up just when you’re connected to the internet. If you have not be infected yet with the pop-up blocker you may have Firefox for your internet and you can download a pop-up blocker right from their site. Please look into getting rid of any pop up’s that you may have immediately. Plus we don’t need anymore added stress to our lives! Good Luck!!!
