I can't get on a website because pop up blocker was detected

I'm trying to get into a website but it says popup blocker was detected. I turned off the pop up blocker but it still doesn't let me get in.

Not Much Information There...

Which website?

Which operating system?

Which browser are you using?

And did you turn off all popup blockers on your computer? (Browser's blocker, all toolbar blockers such as Google toolbar, any other blockers?)

Tried uninstalling any special toolbars?

Hope this helps and let us know more.

or
Boot your computer in safe mode with networking and download MALWAREBYTES software and install in normal mode. after installation scan your computer but updates malwarebytes software from net.

Note :- create the restore point before doing anything.

Then go somewhere else

Then go somewhere else would be my strong suggestion. Very rarely are legitimate sites going to complain about a popup blocker. It's usually porn sites and other places that are a breeding ground for malware and virus infestations. Especially if you're using any version of IE, which is like painting a giant bullseye on your butt, and bending over.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
