+ 1 for unchecky

Malwarebytes antimalware extension to prevent them from loading on browser

Hphosts.pup filter for blocking sites containing pups

Adwcleaner/ malwarebytes-antimalware/ zemana/ norton power eraser etc.. for on-demand

Not that all pups are malicious, or you would see them everyday anyways

Thanks for the suggestions. Much appreciated

Yes, it just works that way. Does not require the user's attention. But the truth is, it's pretty heavy for the system. Still, it's worth trying in the trial version first.

Heavy on the system :unsure: How heavy is it? I'll give it a try for sure! I am trying Mcafee the moment I am typing this reply :emoji_grimacing:

@Al-Faqir
Immediately after installation - from 200 to 300 MB memory and there is a load on CPU. Over time, drops to 50-100 MB memory
and the CPU load drops.
But if you use optimizers, then there may be problems. He or all optimizers delete or almost all.
