Other than x-ing out the page you're looking at, how do you stop pop ups?

I will need step by step instructions because I am computer illiterate.

It should be worth noting that this is a guide to downloading ad-block, if you already have it, or don't feel comfortable downloading something, just ignore this.

Do you use Google chrome? If not, search up Google chrome download on Google and follow the directions.

If so, go to the top right of the browser window, find the thingy with three horizontal marks, and click it. Go down to "About Google Chrome." On the left, click the "Extensions" tab.near the bottom is a link that says "Get more extensions." Click it. Now, in the top left, search ad-block. Find the picture of a hand on top of a red stop sign and click the button that say "+ FREE". When it asks to confirm, click "Add." Congratulations! You now have ad-block! If you ever want to disable it or pause it, click the hand/stop sign that will be added next to your address bar and select an option. If you would like to remove ad-block, go back to "about chrome" and the "extensions" tab, find ad-block, and click the trash can icon to the right of it.

Are you only getting pop-ups when you're on the internet, or is it whenever you're using the computer?

There are pop-up blockers. You can use this if your browser is Firefox:

She had a previous question where that was already downloaded and it wasn't doing any good. :-/ I gave her advice on how to activate the built-in pop up blocker but if they're still happening I wonder if she has a virus.

Use safari. Maybe got 1 pop-up in 3 years(and that was my fault).
