Pop-ups are easily one of the biggest complaints people have about internet use. Every time you try to access a given page, you can end up inundated with any number of pop-ups offering you everything from free Viagra to a free iPod. The worst part is that these pop-ups are not only annoying, but they can be a sign of a much worse intrusion into your web browser.

The Problem with Pop-ups

Pop-ups use tiny programs to activate them, which are included in the pages you visit. Every time you go to that site, you'll continue to see the same pop-ups over and over. Those same pop-ups are also incorporated into your browser as a part of an adware program meant to keep you seeing all of the items they market.

Adware is the primary force driving pop-ups. Adware is taught to follow your page clicks and your traffic to determine the kinds of products you might be interested in. The problem is that this kind of unsolicited advertising is offensive, and invasive. Eliminating adware can be tricky, however, if you don't have the right tools to do it.

Some web browsers have their own pop-up blockers built into their programming, but this isn't always the case. Fortunately, there are pop-up and adware removal tools available right off the Internet. They are free of charge from some very reputable sources, and constantly updated to give you continued protection from the pop-up onslaught. More importantly, these tools also prevent spyware, the more malicious cousin of adware.
