Pop-ups every time i click! – How to remove? Chrome, Firefox, IE and Edge

Pop-ups every time I click! Many users experience pop-ups every time they click on web pages. Most of these pop-ups are legitimate, for example, a pop-up that states a privacy policy on a web page or a coupon code. However, this article is about intrusive pop-ups, pop-ups that are displayed when adware has infected the Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer or the Microsoft Edge browser. The intrusive pop-ups by adware are redirecting the user to many dangerous web pages and advertisement networks.

Pop-ups by adware will redirect the user’s internet browser through a variety of redirect loops before landing on an advertisement. Few examples of dangerous browser redirects by adware are laserveradedomaina.comgo.oclaserver.comgo.oclasrv.com and poimeej7x.com redirects. Redirects commonly occur when a user hovers or clicks within a web page, causing a browser redirect pop-up. Once adware has infected the PC every browser is affected, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge.

Users have asked us; Pop-ups every time I click, how to remove? Well, here is an explanation. Every time the user clicks and a pop-up is triggered happens when adware, e.g. an ad-supported application has been installed on the PC. Adware is monetized software, designed to display intrusive commercials using pop-ups on the infected PC and browser. Some website’s that provide suspicious services such as free games, free downloads, free toolbars etcetera are likely to bundle their free software with adware and pop-ups ads for revenue.

Adware and the associated pop-up ads use a deceptive procedure to install on the users PC, this technique is called bundling. The Download manager that use bundling is known as “Pay-Per-Install” or “monetization” installation software. Pay, Per Install download managers are an adware deployment tool for advertising networks. Adware publishers get paid for every new adware installation using these download managers.
