how to Stop unwanted ads, popups, or browser malware

If you are using Google Chrome as the default Web browser on computers in your small business, you don't need any distractions. If Google Chrome allows websites to open advertisements in the form of pop-ups, you need to block them as soon as possible. These advertisements are annoying if you're working and are also potentially dangerous. Your hard disk contains sensitive business data and these advertisements can contain malicious code. Google Chrome enables you by default to block all websites from opening advertisements.

Enabling the Native Pop-Up Blocker

Step 1Click the wrench icon in the top right corner of the Chrome window and select "Settings" from the menu to open the Settings page.
Step 2Click the "Show advanced settings" link to view the advanced settings.
Step 3Click the "Content settings" button in the Privacy section to open the Content Settings window.
Step 4Click the "Do not allow any site to show pop-ups (recommended)" radio button in the Pop-ups section to stop sites from opening advertisements.
Step 5Click "OK" at the bottom of the window to apply and save the settings.
Step 6Navigate to a website to test the new settings.

Installing the AdBlock Extension

Step 1Launch Google Chrome and navigate to the Google Chrome Web Store to download the AdBlock extension (link in Resources).
Step 2Click the "Add to Chrome" button in the top right corner of the page.
Step 3Click the "Add" button to confirm and install the new extension. The extension blocks all ads immediately after you install it, so you don't need to restart Chrome.
