Not sure, but is pop up is considered to be virus? It's like whenever I go to sites to do research or something I get this advertisement ad pop up thing.
Even the pop up blocker is turned on. I don't understand. Someone enlighten me here.

It depends...a LOT of sites of pop-ups..and the pop-up blocker in the website only catches a certain class of pop-ups..a lot of websites now employ a different kind of pop-up that is harder to stop.

Depending on your browser, make sure you install the Adblock extension and that might stop more of these things..

There aren't any virus that run on the Mac that can cause pop-ups to appear in the browser, there are trojans but not sure if they do this either..

I see. I thought os x would be able to stop viruses... if it is considered a virus.
It's contradicting from what Apple site was saying..
regardless, where is this adblock extension? you have a link? thx.

It is not a virus..read this Official antivirus, malware, and firewall FAQ to get the details..I'm not going to rehash all that..

What browser are you using?
