Websites that pop up unexpectedly can be both an annoyance and a drain on your computer system's resources. Do not fret, however, since most popular browsers allow you to block pop-ups by changing the settings. Occasionally, you may find some sites do not work correctly without pop-ups enabled. If that is the case, you can go back and simply enable pop-ups for the time being.
