The Necessities of Installing An AD Blocker:

Reason One: Virus never rest, cyber criminals are racking their brains to develop, and spread nasty viruses throughout the cyber world. As an active online user, there is a great chance that you may run into some malicious websites or phishing sites while surfing online. Imagine being interrupted from time to time by the same pop-up ads, what would you feel?

Reason Two: Manual settings are really unfriendly for users, as one need to set all browsers separately. It’s pretty sure that some people don’t want to bother that much. Then an all-in-one pop-up ads blocker seems practical and complies with the trend.

Reason Three: Browse smart seems a good way to avoid being a victim of cybercriminals or annoying pop-up ads. Yet, it's impossible for us to be cautious of every browse or be on the alert for every click. What about order a tool to do all that for you? AD Blocker then seems in a great need.

Get one to keep safe on the Internet, and guard your PC security while browsing the Internet using Internet Explorer, Google, Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox.

Hi, i downloaded some add-on for mozilla firefox which helps preventing popups, i'm having problem with that not because i don't know how to turn it off, but because it is very irritating
doing that every time i enter a site which contains scripts and etc...
do you have/know a better tool i can use in order to improve this problem?

thanks in advance :)

If you want to get rid of pop - up , Then you have need to block the pop - up . In the IE you have need to open the tool option . click on the pop-up block opiton .then you will get the navigation . you can block the ad pop- up and allow some particular site to show there add .
In the chrome browser . click on the wrench option . then click on the setting . you will get the privacy content setting . then click on the pop - block option .
