  5. With the Weather Bug, which I installed from our local TV station. , it has never given me any problems.

I used AdBlock for years, and after switching off it I hardly have any issues. If I like the article I always look for a button to share. uLocal Page = c:\windows\system32\blank.htm uStart Page = hxxp://www.yahoo.com/ mLocal Page = c:\windows\SysWOW64\blank.htm uInternet Settings,ProxyOverride = *.local TCP: DhcpNameServer = 192.168.0.1 . - - - - ORPHANS REMOVED - - - - http://productforums.google.com/d/topic/chrome/ZGJTkfDEjnA And the ones to suffer will not be the ad companies, but the sites that rely on ads to stay in business.

We don't feature pop-up ads and all that other crap. All of this information is collected by WeatherBug.com and is used to help improve our offerings to you. Actually the pop ups are generated by the websites you visit and also come from spyware programs located on your computer.

Comcast does not send there customer pop-up ads. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/lets-put-stop-pop-browser-ads/ Reply KustenWatche August 29, 2014 at 1:18 am Ben S , FYI the Quote re: the Philistines, was one of the last things Peter Jennings said about the ABC network and Jump to content Sign In Create Account Search Advanced Search section: This topic Forums Members Help Files Calendar View New Content PC Pitstop Members Forums Calendar More PC Pitstop If it’s a weird search engine that pushes ad-filled websites to the top of its results, you’ll experience more pop-ups.

Thanks for your understanding. 2- Perform everything in the correct order. So who is the real thief here? I've never seen a pop-up or other malicious ad on the site, so I don't really understand what you're so upset about. check over here Also uncheck "Hide Extensions for Known File Types" 6- Back up all your private data / important files on another (external) drive before using our tools (if possible). 7- Please subscribe

If we don't learn to keep that stuff out of our systems, then we will live with the results. Yet they're pushing software. I find that a blank tab doesn't provide much information on startup, so perhaps another page is more interesting/useful.

I am also getting alot of viruses and trojan horses, that NEVER seemed to happen with AT&T! Reply Ben S March 15, 2015 at 5:14 pm Those are atrocious, I agree. If you want some good advice, Learn about something before you go blaming a company for something. I doubt this is linked to those junk tabs but it's worth mentioning.

Reply Ben S August 22, 2014 at 10:03 pm I know that ads are annoying. Completely, and I know how to do that. And you just illustrated the problem--"We don’t have direct control over what ads you see...". Then, I believe the problem of malicious advertising will dry up.

Head to the Settings menu after clicking the three-bar icon. but if you're suspicious of OS X system files, then Csound1's advice is the best thing for you to follow. However, they can also be used to disguise a malicious link. I know darned well there's no way to tell if someone is over 60 years of age, which not an age anybody seems to want to market to (except adult diapers

I also read a couple of things and downloaded Emsisoft Anti Malware program and they gave a list of things they could not change. That's theft.

To help learn about spyware, firewalls, pop-up blockers and virus scans and various virus's here is a helpful website for you. It really has > nothing to do with your ISP, though. This is an uncommon problem, but it’s always best to be safe. We decided that the old static links to other articles weren't as useful, so we changed it out.

I don't appreciate being called a hypocrite without any base. People want to be protected, but they don’t want to have to pay a yearly fee or use... I am a paying customer just like you! Please do not PM me for HJT help, we all benefit from posting on the open board.Want to help others?

It just does what it is supposed to do, and lets me do what I want to do. Other benefits of registering an account are subscribing to topics and forums, creating a blog, and having no ads shown anywhere on the site. I do have a pop-up killer but it's not fair that I have to leave it on ALL the time even when I'm on sites that do not have their own I've got a firewall and have been reporting and blocking all the Comcast IP addresses that ping my computer but there are so many and it only gets worse with each

I do think you have some serious issues with popups though, as suggested above. I really beg to differ, I've been a PC user for over 10 years and over 7 years in the trade as well. I bet it keeps coming back. Here is a good place to learn about Spyware.
