    Some members have complained about getting popups from AllAlias.com. Please know that if you are getting popups, they are not being given by us!

    AllAlias.com never has and does not give popups. If you are getting popups, it is because of one of the two reasons
    1: You just exited a site that gave you a popup
    or more likely
    2: You have a program like KaZaA on your computer that installs adware/spyware on your computer without your consent (actually, you agreed to it in the terms of service of KaZaA). These programs can do things such as randomly generate popups wherever you are on your computer. They can also slow down your system and track you.

    If you are getting popups, I suggest you immediately download Ad Aware or Spybot: Search & Destroy. Either one of these programs should find most, if not all of the bad programs and remove them.

    Again, AllAlias.com does NOT give popups, as there is no code on the site that could possibly do this.

    I've never got any pop-ups and can I just say, yipee, cos they are so annoying, and they slow down my PC!

    So thank you AllAlias for no pop-ups! (y)

    Once you download it, you have to open it and use it to scan your system.

    Do not try to stop the popups. That's impossible. What you must try to do is understand the truth.

    What truth?

    There are no popups.

    There are some free programs that allow you to block them. Go to www.panicware.com, and you can download the Pop-Up Stopper "free version" there. ALso if you click on support it'll tell you how to block those pesky messenger ads.
