Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Popup blocker and downloading

I can't get into my bank web site as they have changed the way to get into it. I called the bank to have them help me and was told that my pop-up blocker is blocking me from getting into it? I've clicked my blocker to be off to get into the web site but nothing happens.

I haven't been able to download anything or print anything off of my computer for some time now.

Can you help me with these 3 things? I am not real good with computers.

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).
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).
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.
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.

How do you disable a pop blocker

Pop-ups are web pages that automatically open when clicking on a weblink; they may or may not be related to the site you are attempting to view.
Most often pop-ups are unwanted advertisements and other forms of spam, which is the reason pop-up blockers exist: to keep unwanted images and sites from interfering with normal Internet browsing.
Sometimes pop-up blockers will block sites and pages that you may want to view, in which case you may want to disable your pop-up blocker.

Create the Menu tab.
Right click in the top section on your homepage select the Menu option this will add File Edit View Tools and Help to the top of your homepage
Click the Tools menu.
Scroll down to "Pop-up blocker."

Select, "Turn off popup blocker."
Disable Pop-up Blocking in Firefox
Select the Tools, menu and click "Options."
Click the Content tab.
Uncheck the box labeled "Block pop-up windows," then click "OK."
Disable Stand Alone Pop-up Blockers
Press "Control," "Alt" and "Delete" simultaneously to bring up the Task Manager.
Find your pop-up blocker program and highlight it, under the Processes tab.
Select "End process."

Click the "Content" tab.

Locate the line that reads "Block pop-up windows" and click the "Exceptions" button next to it.
Enter the full URL of the site for which you want to allow popup windows.

Why i diD n0T uSe thE fAcebook siTe????

Do you have any ad-Blockers? what is your firewall? any popup blockers?
you may need to allow the website through your firewall if its not windows firewall
if you have windows Firewall then an ad blocker/popup blocker is blocking it, allow through that or turn off your ad blocker/popup blocker
Q: why would an ad blocker/popup blocker block Facebook?
A: Facebook contains elements that are often identified as ads or popups, Most of the content are popups/ads, and as such since the entirety of Facebook runs off popups/ads, that is blocked as a result of being identified as unsafe, do not be surprised, some websites are blocked like this that are actually safe and are otherwise known as False Positives in terms of spyware, viruses, Potentially unsafe websites, etc
Q: Is there a solution? A: Yes, uninstall your popup/ad blocker IF you havent bought actually bought it and download and install Peerblock:
for your reference i have mine set to block: Anti-p2p Spyware Advertising
and if you use Google Chrome or something that uses Google Chrome Extensions, install this, it doesnt block Facebook, but blocks all ads and saves your download bandwidth, i cant recommend this extension highly enough :) :
