When browsing through various websites, you can often find that random pop-ups will appear on your screen. These pop-ups will be purely advertisements and have nothing at all to do with the site you are visiting. The easiest way to stop these pop-ups from appearing is to download a free pop-up blocker on your computer. This will help prevent any pop-ups from appearing on your computer.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Open up the Internet browser on your computer. Click on the address bar and enter the address for either "Synergeticsoft," "CNET Downloads" or "Panicware."

  2. 2

    Click on the "Download" button to download the installer on to your computer.

  3. 3

    Open up the installer and click "Next" to install the program on your computer. Click "Finish" when the installation is complete. The program will now run on the right side of your desktop task bar.

  4. 4

    Visit a website that has a pop-up you would like to control. The pop-up will now be blocked from appearing.

  5. 5

    Hold "Ctrl" on your keyboard and click on a link if you would like the pop-up or new page to be opened. This stops the pop-up from being blocked, allowing you to control which pop-ups you specifically want blocked.
