Initial Problem Statement
To address the general problem of pop ups, and how they scam you
- How they "pop-up" - How they infect a computer - How they scam money from people who "Click Here" - How the problem can be solved.
Popups were originally designed to help in the display of information but have become a serious threat. They are an annoyance
to computer-users around the world. But not only that, some may have viruses linked to them, others ask for a credit card
number to scam money from unsuspecting users. The risk has become so great that judicial action has been taken to combat
these hidden crimes. Our project will address these and other issues regarding pop ups as well as how to block them.
[ways to get rid of each type of popup (pop over, under and timed)]
Since there are many ways that pop-ups will appear on your screen, it is best to install a popup blocker on your browser to stop any of them from opening up.
