Here are a few serious help for you to get rid of the most annoying things on the internet and I mean it; really really “ANNOYING”. Pop up ads and adware ads.
The inventor of pop up ads, Ethan Zuckerman himself apologized for inventing “internet’s original sin”. Read about it at here _blank
Now, almost all of us, at some point have gone through this annoying experience of seeing adds and pop ups everywhere on the internet all of a sudden. First off, I am going to show you some ways to get rid of the pop up ads and then I will discuss how these ads take over your internet browser.
Method #1: Delete Plugin/add on.
No matter what browser you are using, find you add on or plugin/extension from under settings menu. Look for the any suspicious adware (See some of the popular adware plugins to look for at the end of this post). If you have a lot of plugins on your browser, read descriptions for each plugins to see what it is for. Delete the one which you don’t trust. Below is how you can do it on google chrome.
Chrome Browser: Open a new tab – Go To: Customize and Control Google Chrome-> Setting-> Extensions
Method #2: Uninstall the Adware from your Computer
You might want to do this even if ads are not showing after you follow Method #1. This would help you to prevent from any future automatic malware/adware downloads to your computer.
Go To: Widows Start-> Control Panel-> Programs-> Programs and features
-> Now look through all the installed programs to find and uninstall any new or suspicious looking programs. Caution: Make Sure You uninstall the right program. (See some of the popular adware plugins to look for at the end of this post)
Method #3: Turn on Pop-Up Blocker:
Turning you pop-up blocker helps you in two ways. It helps you get rid of the annoyingness, secondly it prevents your browser from force downloads. You would still be able to see the blocked ads and can delete/ deactivate manually. Follow the steps given below to do this.
Go To: Control Panelà Internet OptionsàInternet Properties-> privacy-> turn on popup blocker
