Pop-ups originating from website are not just some casual occurrence. Indeed, you could get such pop-ups simply as a result of clicking on some malicious links. There are many of them in spam emails, etc. However, in case such pop-ups appear on a regular basis, the problem lies much deeper. This means that your system has become infected by adware.

These pop-ups may practically appear in all major browsers today, including Google Chrome, Opera, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. Other browsers, of course, aren`t an exception and can be touched by it too. The problem is that clicking on these pop-ups is dangerous, since you may be redirected to a lot of third-party websites, through which your system may become full of other infections.

Stay safe!
