How to Block Pop-ups With McAfee

By Craig Mckerlie

Configuring McAfee to block pop-ups is easy. However, you must be the system administrator or logged on to your own personal computer as the primary user to complete this task.

Step 1

Log into your computer as the system administrator or as the primary user. In most computers, the primary user account is also the administrator.

Step 2

If you did not configure McAfee to start when the computer first starts up, you need to start McAfee before continuing.

Step 3

Click "Internet and Network" and "Configure" in the "Internet and Network" information section.

Step 4

Click the "Advanced" button under the Web browsing protection in the pane.

Step 5

Click on the check box next to "Block pop-up windows from appearing when you browse the Internet." A check mark should appear in the box.
