how can one stop all these pop up advertisements from slowing down your computer?
I constantly am running anti spyware scans and cleaning my cache to get a better connection but it is an endless task!
Skyward: Yes. And news sites are the worst. You need a gaming computer to be able to run the page.
oh sorry. Yeah i just meant you need a really powerful computer. Gaming computers have lots of powah!
I have been using Adblock Plus for so many years I can't remember and I don't have any advertisements in my tablet my phone or any of my computer's ever even on Facebook and they're all gone what are you doing wrong.
Install Adblock Plus with the proper filters then install Noscript add on and open your web browser in a sandbox everybody uses sandbox technology like the free program called sandboxie these days
Install an adblocker in your browser, either Adblock Plus or Ublock Origin. They will stop all the adverts and pop ups so your computer will be fast again.
And the thing is, if you have ad blockers or pop up blockers, they make it worse sometimes. Because the sites force ads through before they let the page load. Yahoo has done it right here on Answers.
Back in the days of 56k modems….web site dev heads knew they could only shove so much into the pipeline….Now it seem …..hot processors / killer video cards / honking bandwidth , they are just blowing down all kinds of trash……
Video ads embedded into a page….cookies blowing what you do so they can dump related ads in your face…
People spend trillions for internet access while web dogs make billions off of ads….
yeah… and news sites are the worst… you need a gaming computer to be able to run the page…
oh sorry… yeah i just meant you need a really powerful computer… gaming computers have lots of powah!
Does anyone still trust adblock??
Oh yeah, it's so annoying!
