How to Remove Strange Pop-Ups
Why you need to know:
Sometimes computer users unknowingly give permission to software programs like Adware, Spyware or any other advertising software when useful programs and device applications are downloaded. In some instances, Malware or Antivirus software does not even see the threat these unwanted advertisements pose.
What you will need:
How to get it done:
Note briefly, you may not need access to the internet but, for reference, it will be good to connect the computer to the internet so that you can read about the software advertisements that keep popping up.
Adware or Spyware usually pops up after you have downloaded free software or applications, even those for your mobile phone. It is important to read the instructions before selecting 'I Accept' on the software agreement license as many of these agreements have fine print that states that you will be downloading associate programs which generally show up without warning on the screen when the free software is launched, or in the bottom right-hand corner when the software is in use. The first thing to do is, take note of the adware name or title and search for this program in 'Programs and Features' in the Control Panel to uninstall it along with associate programs.
This may require you to also uninstall or remove the free software downloaded that you intended to use before the Adware popped up. If you plan to download it again, download from another website, since most of these Adware or Spyware programs can track the websites you usually visit or download other software from. You will need to clear the Cache, Cookies and Internet Browser History as well (see helpful links below).
It is important to remove these Adware, since most of these programs use a lot of CPU power and RAM resulting in the device moving slower, shutting off unintentionally or hindering other software from starting up or working. Reading more about your antivirus software, AVG and Malwarebytes are good, and also free Anti-virus/Anti-Malware software for Windows computer users.
Mona Prep Opens Engineering Lab
Mona Preparatory School continues to innovate by establishing the first engineering lab in a preparatory school, the first of this kind in an elementary school in Jamaica.
Through a project developed and donated by the Mona Prep Foundation, the engineering lab was built and pilot tested during the Easter and summer terms of 2013. Catering to students from kindergarten to grades 3, the lab was set up under the instruction and guidance of Marvin Hall, a pioneer of robotics in education in Jamaica.
"The thrust is to expose our children to early experiences within the engineering field. We are preparing them for a future in which their jobs do not yet exist," said Hall, explaining the rationale for the facility within the school and as part of the education process. "We are focusing on building those important thinking skills, team-work skills and other skills that will lay a foundation for excellence in science, mathematics and technology."
"This is a sign of a new pedagogy for Jamaican children. Mona Prep is leading the way and showing a different kind of orientation in education. One that is far more appropriate for problem solving and analysis than it is for memorising and regurgitation," said Minister of Education Ronald Thwaites at the opening of the facility.
