How do I get rid of an authentication pop up window permantly

Posted

I have a pop up an authentication pop up window for something called http://www.baracksbirdaycards.com that will not go away. It keeps popping up & when it does it stops me from what I am doing. No matter how many times I click the red X or cancel it comes right back. Can you tell me how to get rid of it.

Do a thorough malware scan.

Install, update and run these programs in this order. They are all free for personal use, but some have limited functionality in the "free mode", but those are features you really don't need to find and remove the problem that you have. (Not all programs detect the same Malware.)

For Windows 7 : 1.you can either turn off the user control setting or you can go to control panel->administrative tools->local security policies->security settings->local policies->security options->user account control:Behavior of the elevation prompt for administrators in admin approval mode. 2.Inside that change the local security setting to elevate without prompting. 3. Usually mozilla firefox is included in trusted certificate holders list. but still sometime this problem arises. For that you have to check the name of the firefox application inside firefox folder. 4. It should be "Mozilla Firefox" and not just"firefox" . Simple renaming will solve this issue . 5. Or else try mozilla firefox 4.0 or greater.

Good Luck
