Please help..... anyone know how to get rid of the pop ups that come from   I have tried to block pop ups using the avast software but these still come through.   I know they are malware and connect presumably to viruses as once i clicked on it and Avast went crazy and said this was an unsafe site......

but i cant get rid of it... they pop up for ages while i am browsing and then eventually go quiet.... until the next time.

Any suggestions?  jane

Hi m.janehack,

Best way to deal with these push.up pop-ups is to reset your browser to it's default settings.
Whenever you feel uncomfy doing that yourself,
wait for a qualified remover to appear here to help you to perform the cleansing.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!
