How to get rid of pops ups.

August 1, 2014 at 21:44:52
Specs: Windows 7
I am getting so many pop ups. How do I stop them? I went to control panel, internet options, privacy, box was checked to turn on pop up blocker, then settings, set to high default medium and I'm still getting a lot of pop ups, especially from PLEASE HELP!

You didn't state which virus/malware protection software you have but it's apparently not doing the job. Let us know what you have, maybe one of us will be able to suggest a better alternative.

In the meantime, download & run CCleaner-Slim or CCleaner Portable. Remove everything it finds. It may take quite a while for the initial run & be aware that you may lose any website passwords you have stored. Run the registry scanner & remove everything it finds as well.

After you've done that, reboot into safe mode & run a full scan for viruses & malware.

Also in addition to both above, look into your browser's add ons and disable or uninstall any that you do not absolutely need.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Also perhaps run adwcleaner:

Each of utilities suggested in the posts various here go after different pests; although there is likely some common ground too.

Agree with XpUser4Real re' Adblock... Since I installed it there has been a noticeable drop in pesky popups...

Have you checked to see if any of the program listed in response #1 Step1-3 are installed (Control Panel > Programs and Features). If any exist uninstalling them should be the first thing you do.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
