At the moment I have pop-up stopper free edition. It has worked fine for me for a good while but a site I regularly use seems to have a lot more of those ads that float across the screen. My pop-up blocker does not seem to be able to stop them at all. I have even had a trial of the paid version and that one did not stop them either.
If I click on the advert by accident whilst it is floating along. Pop up stopper tries to block it but then it freezes and I have to go to windows task manager and end task which is a real pain.
Can anyone recommend a pop up blocker which will work for the floating ads as well as the pop ups?
I am willing to pay but obviously if I could get one for free that would be great.
Use Firefox click here instead of Internet Explorer and install these three extensions click hereclick hereclick here and you will never see another ad, pop-up, floaty thing or advertising-related annoyance ever again.
to repeat;you would do well to run the suggested scans on your computer ; you have seen floating things and such ; these can be a sign of infection and it is well worth the effort to run scans to check to see if you have picked up something you do not want on your comp ,even if you have apparently installed blockers on your comp
I also think it a bit 'over-enthusiastic' for anyone to say you will never ever again see floating things etc; but; it is your comp and one can only make suggestions and offer advice; if it were my comp I would run scans to check it out ;choice is of course yours
I too am having the same problem with these ads. Many are casino ones but just as many are Amazon, Tesco etc. I have run AVG, Spybot, Adaware etc but they don't detect anything. Any advice please folks?
