Hello, Go to your computer and type Advanced Windows Care or Advanced System Care 3 (either should take you to the right place) download and run program. It's easy and it's free. You'll be amazed how much junk it can find. It has worked well for me.

If you find this information to be correct would you please enter a "fixya" rating.

Can you Stop all pop ups?


yes
go to the far top right tool bar in the browser screen, click on the 3 bars , in the drop down box click on settings, find popups and turn the section off
you will find however that when using the net you will come across sites that practically demand popups or addons to be allowed and you may not access the data until you say yes to that request

How do i get rid of pop up ads


Popup ads can appear for several reasons. If you are overloaded, chances are you have malware. Use an anti malware program like Malwarebytes anti malware to remove malware.

Then use firefox browser with adblock plus extension installed to avoid new ads.

We are getting dozens of pop-ups and can get rid of some of them


Popups are annoying messages or advertisements that literally "pop up" while you are on the Internet.
They use to be a huge problem, but with the releases of newer software to block them, they aren't as bad.
When a user is on the Internet, and a new window opens up without them meaning for it to, and there is an ad in the new window that popped up.
That is a popup. To get rid of popups, you're going to need some kind of popup software to stop them from appearing.

Search the Internet until you find a trustworthy Internet popup utility.
Be sure it comes from a reputable downloading source and has good reviews before you download it though.
There are scam softwares disguised as popup blockers, but these will actually add more popups.
Try the Google toolbar (there is a link in the Resources).
https://support.google.com/toolbar/answer/9230?hl=en&ref_topic=3338424
This service is made by Google and since they make a lot of internet advertisements, it makes sense that they know how to block them.
Just navigate to the install website and let it install.
The service is free and is automatic.
It will block most popups and includes a search bar linked straight to Google so you don't have to go to Google's website to search for things.
You can use that search bar.


Give the Yahoo toolbar as well (See link Below).
http://download.cnet.com/Yahoo-Toolbar-with-Anti-Spyware/3000-12512_4-10310984.html
Their toolbar is free and also has a popup blocker.
Like Google's toolbar, they offer a built in search engine in it.
Their's has a spyware searcher as well though. It can scan your computer for spyware which one of the causes of popups.

Download and try Smart Popup Blocker if you aren't satisfied with other services.
http://download.cnet.com/Smart-Popup-Blocker/3000-7786_4-10282837.html?tag=mncol
This doesn't add a toolbar to your web browser like Yahoo or Google.
Instead, it is software that runs in the background of your computer and blocks popups to the best of its ability.
It only works in Internet Explorer though.
You also might want to install antimalware and superantispyware

I have 2 pop up ads that periodicaly pop up even after I have closed the ad window. How do I permanently delete them ?


It sounds like your computer might be infected with spy- and/or malware. The easiest way to get rid of this is to use a free program like Adaware (or any other similar program). Adaware is made by Lavasoft, a simple google search should get you a download.

Another option might be to get an add-on for Firefox called "AdBlock Plus". I've been using it myself for years to block out unwanted adds and I do believe it also kills certain popups.

Keep getting annoying pop-ups when I access my yahoo email http://ca.mg1.mail.yahoo.com/neo/launch How do I get rid of them ? Thanks, Nico


Which browser are you using? I suggest switching to Chrome and using the Ad-block extension. Or switching to Firefox and using its Ad-block extension. Internet explorer has popup blocking and ad blocking capabilities however the other browsers listed are far superior.

Sounds like you have spyware, adware, and maybe even a virus. Try using lavasofts ad-aware personal edition, or spybot search and destroy, or avg anti virus. To get rid of the infection. If that doesn't work maybe try Norton or you might have to re-install windows. Sorry try those and see what you can find. Hope this helps. M~
