How do I stop unwanted pages from overriding the page I want, such as this: http://browser-updater.com/?compaignId=3790&reqId=2070607098

Posted

That particular page kept appearing when I was viewing a CNET report,andkept reappearing. I could return to continue by hitting the 'back' arrow, but the same thing kept repeating. Other 'false' sites have appeared also, such as to update java, flash, and so on.
