    Re: how do i stop pop ups

    You get infected through browsing bad websites - gambling, porn etc so make sure you aren't doing that

    Then install this program: www.malwarebytes.org
    Run a scan and it will probably pick up a load of malware and adware that you can block and delete.
    If you are using Internet explorer - switch to Firefox.- You can then install an add on to stop pop ups regardless of which sites you are visiting.
    Another thing to note. if you get odd looking messages from your contacts with links in them - dont click them. Your friends may have had their hotmail accounts hacked and then they are used to send these malicious emails which take you to "drive by" attack sites which install all-sorts of crap on your system.

    See how that goes and if its still happening post again as there are quite a few good programs that will deal with this for you.

    I use Bitdefender Internet Security, the last time I tried installing malwarebytes ii seemed that it was not compatible with the Bitdefender! I might try again but do you know if this is common with some Anti-Virus programs?

    Hi Sue

    That's quite common for security products.

    My friend has the same problem with VirginMedia's security product (BitDefender based) and Malwarebytes but it only seems to be a problem if you run them at the same time; if you install MalwareBytes but don't set it to run all the time and only use it manually it seems to be OK.

    ESET runs quite happily with Malwarebytes but complains if you are using Norton !!

    Thanks Bob! I have a feeling we have had this conversation before! I'll install it again and just use it when I want to!

    Re: How do I stop pop-ups on my PC?

    I have never ever looked at any kind of porn on my computer its not my scene!!. CIM i have done what you said and it come up with 63 faults on it so i followed the instructions to delete them and i havent used it all morning, ive just come online now and there are 13 chat pages on the top toolbar... so i dont think that has done anything to be honest. Any other suggestions welcome .PS i use google chrome.

    dede! Did you look to see if there was an Add-on in Chrome that will disable pop-ups? I would think you have already looked though!

    Hi Dede

    Did you run the full check via Malwarebytes rather than the short one? When I've done a full check it's taken overnight to complete. I use Firefox and occasionally Chrome and don't get any pop ups.

    Hope you can get it sorted as it drives you to distraction as you say.
