Annoying POP UP,S
charles - 25-9-2013 at 09:52

How can I stop pop ups, I get complete pages of rubbish popping up whilst I am browsing,
Like I will be looking at my bank accounts and a full page takes over going on about supermarkets or things like that.

I use Firefox and am on Windows 7 ..............confused2confused2confused2

What security are you running, Charles? Download Malwarebytes Free and run it. Copy the report and post here.
