Is there some kind of a pop up blocker I can get?
« on: February 23, 2014, 05:17:57 AM »
Sorry if this is the wrong place to post. Not sure where to ask this. Anyway I have Avast and Malwarebytes.

Is there another program I can get that blocks pop ups when you go to certain sites such as stream sites and what not. Sometimes even if you click these links which ofc are like malware and virus's the malware byte warns me saying it blocked a suspicious site. Same with Avast sometimes saying it blocked a threat or what not.


But not every pop up can be stopped. Is there some kind of a pop up blocker program I can get that BLOCKs ALL pop ups????????????

Please let me know.

Thanks, because I want to be able to go on whatever sites it may be that I go on and not have to worry about these annoying pop ups.

Once again if anyone knows, I will appreciate if you can let me know. Thank you.

Oh and some people may say don't go to these sites. Well it's not just stream sites or porn. But It's also on sites like YT or MMA/Wrestling forums where these false java advertisements come up and what not. Or other harmful things... So ya please let me know if there is some kind of a pop up blocker I can get

Try AdBlock Plus or PrivDog.

These are javascript pop ups.  They appear when you click on something right?

"By default, Firefox or Adblock Plus doesn't block any pop-ups that are opened on mouse clicks or other user events. This addon complements Adblock Plus with the pop-up blocking functionality."

You can block them in Chrome and firefox quite easily

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-plus-pop-up-addon/

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/poper-blocker/bkkbcggnhapdmkeljlodobbkopceiche?hl=en

Not sure about IE.  The only warning is to learn how to whitelist, b/c some sites like Academic sites and banks legitimately use javascript pop ups.

Opera has a real good pop up blocker build in.
You can also use your hosts file to block sites that give pop ups.

My current browser is google chrome and ya I see java pop ups and what not clicking saying it's out dated and to install when I know for a fact my java is fine that java pop up is some kind of a hack or whatnot.

And other pop ups. Pop up regardless that want me to download shit and I X them out. The problem is what if I accidently hit download. Know what I mean? I want to be rid of these nasty little buggers.

 I want it so they don't pop up whether I click them or not. I want them gone period lol
