Hi, we're having troubles with pop up ads. They pop up what feels like every 1-2 minutes and we have Adblock turned on. What should we do because we're having trouble with MacKeeper, good game empire, movieflix and a lot more. Please help!!

    Hi Keetyn,

    The ads you're seeing are probably caused by malware on your computer. AdBlock can only block ads that were on webpages in the first place.

    We recommend following the instructions on The Safe Mac's Adware Removal Guide, running an antivirus/antimalware scan, and removing any browser extensions you don't remember installing.
