How to Remove About:blank pop-up ads?
About:blank pop-up advertisements are redirected by potentially unwanted adware programs installed on your PC. The adware program triggers a new pop-up within Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox and redirects to the About:blank ad. Although, these about:blank ads are “blank” they are used by crooks to redirect browser’s to advertisement networks such as Adsupplyads.net.
The About:blank pop-up might show out of the blue, or shown when the user visits a specific website or triggers a specific keyword within the content of the webpage. The browser, for example Google Chrome or Firefox will block these newly created “about:blank” pop-ups and notice the user.
When the browser has blocked an about:blank pop-up your computer is most likely infected with an adware browser extension or adware program on your computer. The internet browser does not create blank pop-ups on its own, it’s software that triggers the about:blank pop-up.
Adware program publishers are known to collect both personally and non-personally identifiable information such as your IP-address, your current location, browser type, type OS and search queries to deliver more detailed advertisements thru adware programs.
