Reduce Pop-ups and Annoying Ads

There is many things more frustrating than surfing a website only to have your screen suddenly full of pop-up advertising or a cascade of new windows opening. There are so many intrusive kinds of advertising on websites that there must be a way to deal with them. Luckily for us there is a few programs out there that will help to reduce the amount of advertising that happens while you surf.

My favorite solution actually comes by using a great new web browser called Mozilla FireFox. This web browser gives you lots of great new features while you surf, including tabbed browsing which saves you loads of time, but one of the greatest features is that is had integrated pop-up blocking built right in to the web browser! There are still a few advertisings that seem to squeak through, but I would say that 90% of the pop-ups I would suffer in other browsers are eliminated because of FireFox web browser.

For those of you who are hardcore Internet Explorer (IE) users then my suggestion to you is to install Google's Toolbar. Google's Internet Explorer toolbar integrates a lot of great features in to your browser, including help with stopping those pesky advertisings. In addition to the blocker it gives you added functionality by having a form filler and quick access to a search bar, with Google's search engine of course and many other great little tidbits.

Unfortunately there is other reasons why you may be getting random advertisings on your computer which may be caused by spyware or adware software that is already running on your computer. There is several free or trial programs that you can use to help clean up your computer and get rid of these nasty little programs. These utilities in conjunction with a good antivirus program should keep you both free of hidden software programs running on your computer, and annoying advertisings!
