How to Block Google Pop-Up Ads

By Lyan Uaha

Microsoft Windows Vista allows you to easily block Google pop-up ads using its built-in pop-up blocker utility. This utility blocks all pop-up windows, including Google pop-ups, while you are surfing the Internet. The pop-up blocker also saves precious bandwidth, which is otherwise wasted on opening useless web pages.
