Questions nerds often hear about Remove Popups Eugene
What happens if I click on a popup?
If you click on a popup, it will take you to another page. Sometimes it will be innocent enough and try to sell you something; but the rest of the time it will probably try and download something to your computer. Even just clicking can give the hacker exactly what they want.
Do popups mean someone has my information?
Popups are often found in conjunction with viruses, but not always. If you have popups, it could just mean that someone is trying to sell you something. Never enter any information into a popup.
