Pop-Up Threats: The Internet pages you download /open contain a hybrid of programming languages or in layman's terms code that allows you to see the graphics and animations.

To block your Internet browser from allowing pop-up windows, install a descent pop-up blocker. The pop-up blocker used by LD-Networking is the Google Toolbar with pop-up protection.
