How to Remove Pop-Ups on a Pop-Up Blocker

By Nick Davis

Your computer's Internet pop-up blocker prevents websites from opening unwanted windows on your screen. The pop-up blocker allows you to control what appears by letting you store the names of pop-up websites that you do want to see. This record is kept within the pop-up program and only permits approved pop-ups to appear within your computer's Internet browser. You can remove a pop-up listed within the pop-up blocker if you are experiencing problems with the website, the website is no longer valid, or your browser is not working properly when the pop-up website is accessed.
