Most of the pop-ups occur when the users access heavy websites and popular pages. These pop-ups interfere and disallow you to read the content and instead advertize their displayed products or information. Pop-ups can be disabled or blocked with the use of a pop-up blocker. Many web browsers and free toolbar add-ons, such as the Google Toolbar, have introduced built-in pop-up blocking capabilities that the users can turn on and off based upon their requirements.
Steps to Install a pop-up Blocker
Installing a pop-up block like Google Toolbar is fairly simple. Firstly, you may open Internet Explorer® and navigate to the toolbar on ‘google.com’. Then, you may click ‘Download Google Toolbar’.” When prompted, click ‘Agree and Install’ to download and then close the window after installation. Secondly, you need to open Internet Explorer® again. At the top of the browser, you will find the Google Toolbar. The toolbar has the Google logo to the left. In the toolbar itself, you will notice an icon with a red circle containing a line through it. This means that the pop-up blocker is running. If you don’t see this icon, click on the ‘Wrench’ icon located on the Google Toolbar and select ‘Options’ under ‘Tools’, and check the box to run the blocker. Finally, you need to click the ‘Pop-up blocker’ icon to turn it on or off.
Use of Antivirus Programs to Block Pop-ups
Many antivirus programs also perform various tasks to disallow pop-ups and finally make the users free from these, thereby allowing them to use the Internet freely. You may also download trial versions of antivirus software and then use them act as pop-up blockers.
