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.
