Delete pop-ups

Delete pop-ups is a very generic scam website that tries to trick users into subscribing to advertisements, which would appear on the desktop. If you press “Allow” on the browser alert that says “ wants to show notifications”, you will essentially be agreeing to see ads on the desktop.



Your browser has a feature that allows websites to show you notifications, if you grant it permission. The permission is requested when you visit the site with an alert that says “[sitename] wants to show notifications”. If you press “Allow”, the site will be able to display its notifications on your desktop. The notifications depend on the content the site posts. For example, a news website would show notifications related to the news, such as breaking news stories. So if there’s a site you frequent and wish to be up to date with what it posts, the feature may be useful.

The issue is, however, with sites like Allowing to show notifications means getting spammed with ads, considering that the site itself is essentially a scam. Its shown notifications will not only be annoying but also potentially dangerous. They may be made to purposely resemble legitimate system notifications in order to trick users into downloading some kind of potentially unwanted program or even malware. If you have allowed the site to show you notifications, you need to revoke that permission as soon as possible. Instructions will be provided below this report.

As a precaution, we recommend you scan your computer with WiperSoft or some other anti-virus program to determine whether adware is causing the redirects. If that is the case, you would need to get rid of the adware to delete redirects permanently.

Adware may be responsible for redirects to

In most cases, redirect to sites like are triggered by the sites users visit. There are many websites that are considered to be high-risk due to the ads they host and redirects they trigger. Such sites usually have pornography or pirated content. To avoid being redirects, users should either avoid visiting high-risk sites, or have adblocker installed.

If the redirects are not triggered by websites, then the likely culprit is adware. Compared to other infections, adware is pretty minor, but it’s certainly very annoying. It usually installs via free software bundling, which essentially means that it comes attached to a free program as an extra offer and is permitted to install alongside automatically. Whatever comes attached to the program is optional but is preselected to install alongside without requiring extra offers. The offers are also hidden, which is why many users end up accidentally installing infections like adware. In order to prevent unwanted installations, opt for Advanced (Custom) settings when installing free programs. Those settings will make all offers visible and permit you to deselect them. Simply uncheck the boxes of those offers, and only then continue installing the freeware. This is very easy to do and will save you a lot of time because you won’t need to uninstall junk from your computer on a regular basis. redirect removal

Stopping redirects to sites like is not difficult. We strongly recommend you scan your computer with anti-virus software like WiperSoft to check whether adware is causing the issues. If it is adware, the program would get rid of it, thus stopping the redirects. If nothing is detected, and you are only getting redirected when visiting certain websites, install adblocker. It would prevent any future redirects or at least close the windows as they appear.
