Also, check your browser's addons/extensions for adware. and disable just about everything you don't recognize. Adobe may have one or more entries, but other than that, try disabling everything, or at the very least, everything relating to shopping and coupons.

Install an anti pop-up bar. http://toolbar.msn.co.uk/ is the toolbar I have currently and it has been very useful. I use Opera, and I never have to worry about pop-ups. The only disadvantage with not having pop-ups is that some websites you visit require you to enable pop-ups to continue with that site.

There are a number of cons regarding pop up ads. They have the potential to spread viruses and they are considered annoying to web users.

Pop-up blockersAnswer Explanation: Pop-up blockers are designed to prevent unsolicited advertisements from bothering people while they are using a web browser to surf the Internet. While most pop-up ads are undesirable to most users, some of the pop-up windows do provide functionality for a web site. Therefore, most pop-up blockers provide a means to bypass the feature, typically using a hotkey such as Ctrl. This allows the user to hold down the hotkey while clicking on the link to temporarily allow pop-up windows on the site.

If you have a protection code, or child block on your Internet, you will need to enter a passcode, or turn off the block in order to unblock everything. After you unblock everything, you may experience pop-up ads.

If the advertising (which helps to finance the site) is that annoying - there are plenty of ad-blocker programs available on the internet !

Those are pop up ads, some can be really annoying. Purchase and load an internet security program with pop up blocker and it will quit happenimg. If your computer is new then you may already have one, open system security and enable the security and firewall features.

Every website that has been opened in a web browser will show up in the browsing history. Pop-ups are websites hosted on internet servers, so yes, they will.

There should be a tool on your computer to configure so as to reduce the pop ups and more ads.
