Common Terms

Pop­up

A popup is a form of online advertising. Popups can be legitimate or illegitimate. Sometimes illegitimate popups can show on legitimate sites using hacker's code.

Pop­un­der

A popunder is like a popup, but hides under your window until you're done browsing. After you exit, it surprises you with its offer. Do not listen to its lies.

Pop-ups are a lot like kids – except you never asked for them. They bounce around all the time, distracting you while you’re on the computer. They ask for money and for your attention (and they rarely actually need either).  They even ask you to go somewhere (either around Sacramento or around the internet) that you really don’t want to go to. The crucial difference here between the two is that kids are great to have around, and eventually they grow up and make you proud by writing copy for tech websites. Pop-ups, however, are not nearly as rewarding. Often brought on by viruses or malware, and always continuing to increase in number until you pull your hair out in frustration, these annoying little windows can be a serious bother to remove.   At the top of all this, pop-ups are getting increasingly hard to tell apart from the real thing – legitimate announcements from your operating system. They can disguise themselves to look like just about anything – from Windows error messages to iTunes notifications to a variety of other things. If you click on one of them, there’s a good chance they could execute malicious code that could seriously mess with your computer’s internals. Scary stuff, right?!   Fortunately, you’ve got help right here in Sacramento! Our friendly Nerds at Nerds On Call know how to remove pop-ups for good.

Questions nerds often hear about Remove Popups Sacramento

  • 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.
