Some of us use CCleaner to clean up our systems.
Add a good free Ad Blocker like the ones suggested below:
For Internet Explorer Ad Block Plus: https://adblockplus.org/
For Firefox uBlock: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/?src=ss or Privacy Badger: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/privacy-badger-firefox/
Google Chrome uBlock: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ublock-
Hope this helps?
Welcome to the Webroot Community.
You didn't indicate which OS you have. Webroot Secure Anywhere Anti Virus has an optimizer which is set to automatically optimize your system; you can see it under utilities. Your PC could be slow because you have unnecessary programs running, etc.
Please click on the Microsoft link here. It will show you how to optimize your pc, clean-up files, disabled programs you don't use. Let me know how you make out http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/optimize-windows-better-performance#optimize-windows-better-performance=windows-7 again welcome aboard!
As for the advent of a popup blocker for Edge...well, the jury is still out on that as there is no hard and fast official word on that.
EDITED: Thank you ? you got here before me. LOLs
When I click on the link I get this for all browsers!
This I have read here:
