How do you stop pop ups?


Pop-ups are not annoying but may damage your system if you don't get rid of them timely. Research shows that pop-ups may distribute malware or other malicious programs. Be careful! Usually, pop-ups are generated by adware program. So in first step, you should check your installed programs and uninstall any suspicious programs. If the pop-ups still appears and disturbs your browsing history, you can reset your browser to default settings to stop them. If the above manual way is useless, try running a powerful malware remover to remove those annoying pop-ups. More information at:

Most of the spyware programs on the Internet that will infect your computer log the websites you visit so that they can launch pop-ups and advertise products for you to buy.
If you have recurring pop-ups caused by spyware that appear whenever you connect to the Internet, you will need to completely remove the spyware causing the problem.
The most effective way to remove all spyware from your machine is to use at least two different antispyware programs while your computer is in safe mode so that the spyware cannot open itself.
Navigate your web browser to a website that offers a spyware removal utility such as "Spybot" or "Lavasoft Adaware".

http://www.safer-networking.org/index2.html spybot
http://www.lavasoft.com/ lavasoft
Download and install the antispyware software.
Navigate to a second website and download a secondary antispyware utility.
Restart your computer and wait for the manufacturer's logo to appear on the screen.
Press the "F8" key repeatedly until a new menu pops up.
Scroll down through the list of options and highlight the entry labeled as "Safe Mode."
Open up the first spyware utility you installed earlier once the operating system has finished loading in safe mode.
Click on the antispyware utility's "Update Now" button at the left side of the window.
Wait for the program to finish downloading the latest spyware detection routines.
Disconnect your computer from its Internet connection either by unplugging its Ethernet cable or by powering off your wireless router.
Click on the "Search For Problems" button above the "Update Now" button.
Wait for the program to finish scanning your computer's hard drive for spyware, and then click on the "Remove Selected Problems" button.
Close down the antispyware program.
Reconnect your computer to its Internet connection.
Open the second antispyware utility you downloaded earlier.
Run the program's update feature and then disconnect your computer from the Internet again.
Run the program's scan, and then remove any problems it finds.
Reconnect your Internet connection and then restart your computer to finish removing the recurring spyware pop-ups from your PC.
Hope this helps








Stop Internet Pop-Up Ads
Increased control over your computer and its security means less worrying about ********* attempts and virus infestations.
Part of security control when it comes to your computer is stopping pop-up ads from appearing while you surf the Internet.
Pop-up advertisements are not only annoying, but can also make your Internet connection seem slow.
In addition, some pop-up ads are designed to trick you into downloading malicious spyware and programs, which is why blocking pop-ups is a vital issue to the health of your computer system.
Download the latest version of either Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.
All three of these Internet browsers contain built-in pop-up blockers.
Install the browser on your computer and open it when the installation process is complete.
Set the browser's pop-up ad blocker to its highest settings.
Click on the "Tool" tab in Internet Explorer and select the "Pop-up Blocker Settings."
Select the "High" setting in the Blocking Level drop-down menu to block all Internet pop-up ads.
In Mozilla Firefox, click the "Tools" menu and select "Options." Click the "Content" section and make sure the box that reads "Block pop-up windows" is checked.
Using Google Chrome, choose "Options" from the Tools menu.
Click on the "Under the Hood" section. In the Privacy section, choose "Content Settings" and confirm that the "Do not allow" radio button is selected in the "Pop-ups" tab section.
Download and install a free, pop-up blocking software program on your computer.
http://download.cnet.com/smart-popup-blocker/3000-7786_4-10282837.html
Set the software pop-up blocker to its maximum settings to block all pop-up advertisements. Add websites to the "exceptions" options in the blocker software to allow specific, safe sites from which you want to allow pop-up windows.
also
IE: 8 right click in the top toolbar select the command bar this will add it to the toolbar then on the far right hand side select the tools then from the drop down list pop up blocker make sure its turned on and settings

hope this helps
It's easy to learn how to stop pop ups, and you don't need to download pop up blocking software to get rid of those annoying ads. Just try these easy fixes before downloading a pop up blocker.
The first three methods assume you can use the software you already have. It's quick and simple, and you won't need any add-ons with these methods.
It takes only a few minutes to stop pop ups yourself, even if you are not technically oriented. If Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) or Mozilla Firefox on a Windows Vista computer but these steps should work for any Windows compatible computer (although it may vary some if you have a different version of IE).
Here are four easy and quick ways to stop pop ups on your computer. You can use any one (or more) of these methods to get rid of those pesky pop up ads within minutes.
How to Stop Pop Ups - Method #1: Use Your Settings on Internet Explorer 7
Step 1: On Internet Explorer 7, go to "Tools", then "Internet Options"
Step 2: Click on the "Privacy" tab
Step 3: On the bottom, under "Pop-up Blocker", click the checkbox to "Turn on Pop-up Blocker". Click "Ok".
How to Stop Pop Ups - Method #2: Use a Different Internet Browser (Firefox)
Try using Mozilla Firefox instead of IE because Firefox automatically blocks pop up windows (unlike Explorer). You can download Firefox at http://mozilla.current-version.com.
How to Stop Pop Ups - Method #3: Use Your Web Toolbar
You may already have the google or MSN toolbar installed on your browser. If you try this approach, you may also want to read my articles on how to stop pop ups with your Google toolbar and MSN toolbar.
How to Stop Pop Ups - Method #4: Download a Paid or Free Pop Up Blocker
If you've tried the above steps, and you're still having issues, then you should consider downloading a pop up blocker program.
Two reliable free pop up blockers include the Google toolbar and MSN toolbar. Another popular paid pop up blocker is at http://ivyliu.com/panicware.htm.
For everyday pop up blockers, the above methods should work. However, if you've tried all of these suggestions and you're still having problems with persistent pop-ups, then it's likely that you have been infected with spyware.
Summary of How to Stop Pop Ups
First, try changing your IE browser settings to block pop ups. If you have Google toolbar or MSN toolbar installed, then you already have a pop up blocker installed along with it. Try using the toolbars, or try switching to the Firefox browser.
Finally, you can also download a pop up blocker (free or paid). It's easy to stop pop ups without having to download pop up blockers.
If these steps do not remove your pop ups, then you may want to download a free or paid pop up blocker.
If that fails, then you probably are infected with spyware, which must be removed in order to get rid of ad pop ups.
But the above four methods should work to stop most pop up windows.
also if its interfering with your search provider
Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help
Click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list will be internet options or
Click start control panel internet options you will see a home page box To Create Page Tabs type
each adress on its own line (type in google.com) or your preferred home page and browser
below that will be change search defaults click on settings you will see all search Providers
Toolbar extensions and Accelerators you have if don't need any of them you can disable or remove them.
if its a program you might have to uninstall it.

Have you tried booting in Safe Mode with Networking to download? Have you checked the settings in Internet Options, select Connections tab, select LAN settings, check the Automatically Detect settings. If you need Maintenance/cleaner software there are Many freeware programs available at FILEHIPPO: http://www.filehippo.com/ I suggest CCLEANER and MALWAREBYTES as a start, both are freeware.

How do I remove unwanted pop ups?


Internet pop-ups can be an annoyance. These windows are usually associated with different forms of advertisements and at times can include viruses that can infect the computer. Pop-ups do not have to be a part of computer use if the user does not desire this distraction. There are ways to stop pop-ups and prevent them from appearing unless desired. Pop-up blocker allows the user to block these items and select which items to allow.

Open Internet Explorer. Click "Tools" from the menu bar. Tools can be found on the bar that lists "File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools, Help" directly beneath the address bar. Click "Internet Options" from the "Tools" menu. Click the "Privacy" tab in the "Internet Options" box. Click to check the box that says "Turn on pop-up blocker" in the "Pop-up Blocker" section of the menu. Click "Apply" to save changes. Click "OK" to close the "Internet Options" box. The computer will now block all pop-ups from websites. If downloading items from the Web, the computer will ask whether you would like to allow these items to be opened. Hope this helps.

When I log onto AOL before the home page I get a pop up saying CREATIVE SYNC IS NOT WORKING WINDOWS WILL FIND A SOLUTION when I click OK nothing happens the pop up goes away until the next time I log on....


what browser are you using? did you install any addon to the browser or a software that syncs your information?
if not then then try other browsers to see if the same result will appear since this could idicate an error from the browser which i assume is the default internet explorer.
list of web browsers to try are: opera, firefox, safari, maxtor, chrome just to name a few. download from the web and try any. should the problem persist which i doubt if you try a different browser then scan for registry errors.
good luck

I have an HP Photosmart C4250 All in One printer. I was offered a printer up date on line, so I said yes to the up date, and when it finished I received a window that said the up date could not be...


HP also provides tools on HP's Web site that make downloading drivers much easier. HP's browser tools work by integrating with the Internet browser and running scripts to collect important information needed to perform the task. One example of an HP browser tool is the HP Printer Check. HP Printer Check quickly scans your computer for any printers that may be attached and provides links to any drivers or driver update that an attached printer may need. Internet Explorer might block scripts like these and flash the information bar at the top of the viewing window. The information bar displays more information about the item that has been blocked so that you can decide if you want to allow the script to continue. In order to use many of the tools that are available from the HP Web site, you must allow the items that Internet Explorer blocks to install or run. Run or install the items that Internet Explorer blocks by clicking the shield on the left side of the information bar. For more detailed information, use the following step-by-step example to learn how to use the HP Printer Check utility with these security features:
  1. Click an HP software download tool link to install the tool. For this example the link occurs at the top of many Deskjet printer driver download pages and appears as: Click here to have HP automatically check to see if you need a driver update.
  2. Once clicked, an informative window opens telling you more about the tool. To continue, click the Check Now button.
  3. To install the HP software tool, you must click the upper left corner of the information bar (by the shield) and authorize the first item in list. In this example, select Install ActiveX Control (see Figure 5). You can feel safe installing the ActiveX control because you know that it comes from the Hewlett-Packard Web site. CAUTION: Before installing ActiveX controls or authorizing scripts, read the text in the information bar and think about the Web site where the script is coming from. Do not continue if you do not know. Continuing could make your computer more susceptible to viruses or spyware.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
