I keep getting a pop-up window from cleanmasterapp.com that tells me I'm entitled to a free product. I can't get rid of it other than by opening the link. When I open the link I sometimes lose what I've been doing. How do I get rid of this thing?

Hope you can understand, but im not going to go to the link you have posted, as your a new member with 1 post, and to me it screams SPAM, so if you can give us more info like what Mac you have, what OS you have on said Mac, what Browser your using, and what happens exactly when you get it, we might be able to help you, but to go to that site, just to get site look numbers up, i cant do that and hope you can understand.

Cheers

The app is an android only app. The url returns a 404 page.

So not only do you need to provide the info TM requested, but when are you getting this pop up... is this a browser pop up window or is this related to some other OS X application you have installed?

If in a browser - I would suggest you quit visiting whatever site it is that has that annoying pop up.


In this case, sort of doubt it, but If spam, it'll be gone soon enough

I have a Mac OSX Version 10.6.8.
I'm using Chrome.
The window pops up on the page I'm using.
It happens in various things I'm doing - playing a game, checking the news, etc.

I have a windows 7 PC but I also have the pop up. Can only find 2 forums about it and both are very recent so there isn't any info on it. I did a system scan on my computer and some adware was deleted but the cleanmasterapp pop up remains. It appears randomly and I have to close the whole browser to get rid of it. I haven't tried clicking on it.

Clear your browser cache and cookies. It's possible you picked up a cookie somewhere which is signalling servers and they are feeding this ad/popup to you.

Thank you, cradom. I've done this. Let's see if it does the trick.

Nope. That didn't work.

The pop-up reappeared while I was signing in to another forum. I was unable to complete this action till I'd visited the cleanmaster page and closed it.

Check your extensions - I'd remove them all to see if it goes away - then add them back one at a time.

I don't know if this is available for Chrome but there is an add-on called BetterPrivacy which gets rid of what's called LSO's (Locally Stored Objects) or Flash cookies. These cookies cannot be gotten rid of like normal cookies and are a pain. You might look into this for Chrome (or start using Firefox. It's better anyway j/k)

I don't know how to remove them. My Mac 10.6.8 says I can hide or show extensions, but not remove them.

Your Chrome extensions... not OS X extensions.

Open Chrome - then on the menu bar - Window - Extensions

or Chrome - Preferences - Extensions

OK, I've disabled the extensions I had. Hope this works. It seems to have for beedubz.

I also cleared my history, passwords, the lot.
