Macintosh OS/pop up ads

Advertisement


Question
I get "pop up ads" from xfinity wifi. They are the only pop ups I get. When I go to unsuscribe ) they call it managing I do not get through to any place to unsubscribe, I get nowhere then after a minute or two the window dissapears. Is their a setting somewhere that I can use to stop this?  thanks

Answer
I'm not sure that I can help here.

This may be a "code injection" that comcast is doing...

If this is happening at home, getting your own wifi router connected to your comcast cable modem/router (and turning off comcasts wifi) will fix this.

I can comfortably answer most basic/advanced questions regarding Macintosh hardware and software - nowadays only OSX. In fact, if it's prior to 10.3, there's a good chance I'll reject your question. Forget OS9 stuff - Igave up OS 9 ten years ago). Please do not ask me about OS9. My particular specialties are in Video editing/DVD authoring. I am a certified trainer in the "pro apps" (Final Cut, DVDSP, Soundtrack, Motion). I have been using Macs since 1985.
