It is possible to land on the page if you click a link on a partner website, but the most common reason you’re seeing this annoying pop-up is adware infection. There is no need to panic about it because adware applications are not extremely dangerous threats. If anything, seeing Popup on your browser means that you have recently visited a freeware website and downloaded a software package full of potentially unwanted apps.

That is the point with adware apps that utilize Popup. Users often install them onto their computers themselves without even realizing it. With this, we are trying to say that adware is not malware, in that it does not infect your computer surreptitiously. Users are quite often informed about additional programs that are about to be installed on their computers, but they simply miss that piece of information because they click through Next on the installation wizard until they reach Finish. As a result, Popup and other annoying notifications start appearing in your browser’s window.

Needless to say, you will do yourself a favor if you do not click the Popup and close it immediately. Sometimes this pop-up may try to initiate a download automatically, but there is no way that an adware server will offer you an actual product. In fact, if you were to download a software “update” via Popup, it is very likely that you would end up installing even more adware on your computer. Do not forget that software updates should be downloaded from the official vendor’s websites.

Run a full system scan with the SpyHunter free scanner to figure out which programs could be displaying the Popup. Uninstall these programs via Control Panel and then run a full system scan again because there could be some remaining adware files left. Do all you can to terminate any potential threats and protect your system from harm.
