Tech tip of the day for all of you computer users in Appleton, Oshkosh, Milwaukee, and beyond.  Did you know there is a quick and easy way to get rid of pop-ups without clicking on them?  That’s right!  You should NEVER click a pop-up that you were not expecting, because that is one of the main ways viruses enter your computer system.

So, next time you are sitting there and out of no where a browser window pops up and says “You just won XYZ, click here to claim your prize!”; all you do is hold the ALT key on the keyboard and while you hold it, tap the F4 key up at the top of your keyboard.  This sends a “close” command to whatever window is on top.  And by not clicking, you may have just saved yourself $100 to $200 in removing a difficult computer malware, virus, trojan, adware, spyware infection.

Although if you do click it, then you get to see our bright shiny smiles 😀  Cause yeah, everyone is dying to see that LOL.  Safe browsing.
