Pop up Blocker?

Post by Teddy » 22 Feb 2018, 16:55

I think this horizontal.al line, that has taken up residence on my computer Perriot is a Pop up.I was typing earlier ,then this thing announced ?"Pop up".I clicked to delete it, but obviously didn't go, as I am unable to start the computer the usual way. How do I get rid of it please, if pop up is he cause of the problem?

Is it only when you use a browser?

Did you see the words, "Pop-up"?

If it's there regardless of what you're doing, it could be a monitor problem.

Run the cleaners through your computer..... anti virus and Malwarebytes.
Then create a restore point.

Yes Perrorist said Pop up blocker as I don't recall ever hearing the term previously. Not familiar with Computer workings, was searching all the various parts, then I notice a small notice pop up on, that was no good I thought, it is that is causing the problem.
The only way I could access Silver peers was through the web, the computer was frozen from.35pm Qld.,time, until I contacted you to say fixed ,near7pm Qld., time,I think. Some more clicks ,no nothing, then the Pop up sign ,Pop up "OFF "hurriedly clicked ,then able to
Start & Turn off! Weird as you say!
