Pop up blocker

I am a new user to Mcafee, I got it installed with my new Dell. I keep getting quite a bit of pop ups. I have the security centet 2009 edition. I can't find the pop up blocker option. Does this software come with this or should I look else where?. Thanks

RE: Pop up blocker

Wer do you get the popup's from? From McAfee?

If it is adware popup's

follow the steps suggested below.

Download Malwarebytes ' Anti-Malware from or Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.

* Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform Full Scan, then click Scan.
* The scan may take some time to finish, so please be patient.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart (see Extra Note below).
* The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
* Copy & paste the entire report into your next reply.

Extra Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

Security Center 9.0

I have posted the log above. It does not look my computer is affected. I get pop-ups only when I browse on the Internet. It does not seem the Security Center has a popup blocker. If it does, it does not seem to be working effectively. Could some one please tell me if the SC2009 has popup blocker or not. Thank You
