Pop-up Blocker Guide

Pop-up BlockerBrowsing is fun, until you see an unwanted pop-up window. PC or online gamers won't able to focus as well when an unexpected window with advertisements keeps displaying. That's when this pop-up blocker guide can help.

Ads are often seen on websites, but if pop-up or pop-unders become a bit too much, it quickly becomes annoying. Sometimes this behavior can be caused by a hijacked browser replacing the search and home pages, or by adding Brower Helper Objects, extensions or toolbars. Controlling how a website will display its content is recommended, to prevent changes in critical system files on your computer or in the browser.

A pop-up blocker can limit or permanently prevent pop-ups in the browser.

Not all add-ons are bad. An example of useful add-ons is a browser accelerator, allowing you to work faster on your PC, or widgets and gadgets that provide the information you need. Here at Bright Hub's pop-up blocker guide, you will find tips and tweaks for the PC, as well as to Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera and Maxthon browsers.
