A pop-up blocker is any program that prohibits a pop-up at some point in time. This may consist of multiple internet windows, or actual pop-ups caused by coding on a webpage. Generally, pop-up blockers are installed to avoid pop-up ads from webpages. However, depending upon the pop-up blocker, they may block useful information as well. These could include option screens such as print and download options screens, or they could stop pop-ups which would confirm downloads or show a result to a page.
