Pop-ups are advertising messages that appear in web browsers or on your desktop. Pop-ups can be caused by special scripts that webmasters place on their site's pages. In this case users can block annoying pop-ups using special type of software - adblockers. Among the best are AdBlock Plus and AdGuard.
However, often pop-ups are caused by adware or rogue programs installed on your computer or directly in browsers as extensions. Stronghold AntiMalware can successfully remove adware and rogue causing pop-ups on your computer. Do not click on pop-up windows as this may initiate malware download and deeper infection.
