4. Scroll down a little bit more in the window that appears until you see the Pop-ups section. The option “Do not allow any site to show pop-ups” should be selected; if it isn’t select it. Click Done. 

Check Your Approved List of Sites

1. Follow steps 1 to 3 above. 
2. Scroll down to Pop-Ups and click on the large “Manage exceptions” button.
3. If there are any entries in the ensuing window, move your mouse to the far right of each row until an X appears. Click that X. Click Done. 

Scan for Malware

1. Google search to find and install an antivirus program such as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, because it's possible that the pop-ups aren’t coming from websites you visit. They may be originating from annoying software that’s causing a bit of trouble on your system. Download it, install it.
2. Run a full scan of your system – preferably in Safe Mode, if you can. If you don’t find anything, try another app or two just to be sure: Avast is another good option.
