The odd popup is one thing, but of late my PC cannot do anything without my screen overflowing with unwanted guff that if removal is attempted leads to second unwanted screens. It's getting me down. How can I stop it please. I have Norton but don't know if that can do it.

Firefox | Tools | Options | content tab and tick 'Block popup windows' click OK

Internet Explorer has a similar setting under the Privacy tab in Internet Options, click on Apply, OK

Thanks. I have the settings in the system to stop blockups, & have doenloaded the Malware prog, but I still keep getting messages to say my system is full & about to crash, even though my disc is not half full & all working well. Its worse than a sailsman with his foot in the door !

"Your PC is about to Crash" Fake warning Those are malware popups, don't click on them (as if you would, but it has to be said)

Jock1e has said the program to use. Also read this click here
