Pop-ups are great! Who doesn’t love being distracted from the drudgery of using the internet by giant flashing windows advertising our winning of a million dollars? Just the other day I saw a pop-up telling me that there were local Fresno men looking to meet me.  No doubt, these are all completely legitimate.  I mean, who would lie on the internet?

A lot of people – actually, just waiting to scam you with the pop-ups they have created.

Pop-ups are insidious little creations whose entire existence is to twist the truth into something that can make their creators money. It’s not a good system. Some look like messages from your operating system. Others look like iTunes notifications. Others take even more multi-varied forms. No matter their appearance, it’s pretty universally agreed – they’re basically the digital incarnation of Evil with a capital E. They can run malicious code, install viruses and spyware, and generally make your browsing life a living hell.

Questions nerds often hear about Fresno Remove Popups

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.

I want to get rid of all the ads

So do we. Using Adblock Plus along with a current anti-malware software should keep you from seeing any advertisements on the web.
