What's the best way to stop popups from Mac Cleaner & other intrusive products that drive me nuts?

I install Ghostery (https://www.ghostery.com/) and AdBlock Plus (https://adblockplus.org/) as extensions/add-ons on all the browsers I use. It also depends on the sites you visit. Last thing, download, install, and run, Malwarebytes for Mac (https://www.malwarebytes.com/antimalware/mac/).

These are the type of damn products that have the popups! It's like extortion through popups! Thanx for the response!

Hello Mr. D - please tell us what 'cleaning' apps you may have installed? OnyX (http://www.titanium.free.fr/onyx.html) is the main one recommended here (which I assume you already know being a member from 2011, i.e. longer than me) - the other apps/extensions recommended by Bob are the same ones that I'm using. SO, provide some more detail on what you are currently running relative to AV/malware/cleaning/etc. software? Dave :)
