Working or having fun online can be a super challenge if you see dozens of pop ups every day. They are annoying and distracting. And they are sometimes harmful for your PC. What are the ways to get rid of them once and forever. Let’s take a look at a few methods.

A guide to disable pop up ads on Windows 10: step-by-step

Make a list of browsers that you plan to use for surfing online. You will need to set them up separately. When the list is ready, just take the steps listed below.

Mozilla Firefox:
  1. Open the browser and open the menu;
  2. Click on Options;
  3. Tick the box that contains the phrase “Block pop up”.




  1. Open the browser, open Settings;
  2. Go to Privacy;
  3. Tick the box next to the words “pop ups”.





Internet Explorer:
  1. Open the browser, go to Options and choose Privacy;
  2. Tick the box next to the line with “block ads”.



There’s a much easier way to block ads. It’s installing a standalone application that will do its work in every browser. We recommend StopAd. It’s light, free and safe. You will forget about ads not only in browsers, but also in other applications and games that you use on the computer.

Here are the steps to get rid of all the ads on your Windows 10:

Step 1 – Go to and download the app;
Step 2 – Install the application and launch it;
Step 3 – Enable the ad blocker and start surfing online or using any app.

If you are always updating your system, there’s a low risk to face any malware when you are online. So in most cases, using the built-in features of the browsers is just ok. Keep in mind that they cannot clock all types of the commercials.
