My pop-up blocker doesnt stop pop-ups from https://www.bizcoaching.info which appear almost every time I click into a text box or on any link - any ideas?

Posted

As I have gone through the process of asking this question, clicking on links and clicking into text areas have produced pop-ups from https://www.bizcoaching.info

As some of these contain images I would not like my daughter to see, is there some way of blocking the site? As the pop-up blocker isn't stopping them.

hello, this sounds like a problem possibly caused by adware/malware on your pc. please go to firefox > addons > extensions & remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, don't know what purpose they serve, etc). also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there and run a full scan of your system with the security software that you have in place and different other tools like the free version of malwarebytes & adwcleaner.

How do I remove a toolbar? Your response is rather vague
