The expert computer repair technicians at Instant Tech Support will not only help you fix the issue but also guarantee that you will no longer be troubled by unwanted pop-ups.
What is a Pop-Up?
In simple words, a pop-up can be defined as an internet browser window, which appears on your PC or laptop screen out of nowhere and all of a sudden when you are viewing web contents. However, technically, a pop-up is nothing but a GUI (graphical user interface) display area.
Most of these pop-ups are usually initiated on your computer or internet browser due to a single click, double click, or even a rollover of the mouse. In addition to that, pop-ups might also appear on Google Chrome by voice commands while some other pop-ups can also be specifically timed to occur.
A taskbar or menu pulldown can also be considered as a type of pop-up as well as the tiny message box that appears on your device screen when navigating the mouse over taskbars in several computer applications.
Types of Pop-Ups
The pop-ups that appear on your computer screen when accessing any website can be divided into three primary categories:
- Pop-ups that appear when a user click something on a web page
- Pop-ups that appear without any sort of user intervention
- Randomly appearing pop-ups
In most cases, these pop-ups exclusively display advertisements for products and services that users have no interest at all. Additionally, some of these ads are often highly offensive and adult-oriented, which means that you will need to keep your kids and others away from it.
However, some of the pop-up ads do not contain any explicit contents or sales pitches instead they are highly dangerous malicious programs that might bring serious issues to your computer. These kinds of pop-up messages will give you false warnings and prompt you to download undesirable contents and apps to your computer.
Computer users who download these apps or programs are doing nothing but inviting a malicious program to their device. These dangerous programs can cause virus infections to your PC and gradually you might not be able to access even the contents and other files stored in your device.

How to Block Pop-Ups in Google Chrome
It is a widely known and accepted fact that the appearance of pop-ups in internet browsers will make users annoyed and frustrated. Fortunately, these pop-ups can be restricted or even fully stopped by getting in touch with a computer repair service. However, if you are not running into too many pop-up ads, then the best thing you could do is to simply close the window and restrict yourself from interacting with the ads or clicking them.
