How do I stop the annoying Pulse 360 advertising pop-up? Is it some sort of
spyware?

Quite possibly. Have you scanned your system with Windows Defender and an
up-to-date antivirus product?

Hello Steve,

WD is an antispyware app, NOT a pop-up blocker, NOR an AV app

Block Pop-up Windows with Internet Explorer
Prevent most pop-up windows from appearing over pages you want to view while
you’re using the Internet.

A good firewall will also include pop-up blocking capªbilities.

If the problem remains after following Bill Sanderson's advice, download and
run this: (MBAM) and (SAS)

Others have used SUPERAntiSpyware (SAS) and/or Malwarebytes Antimalware
(MBAM) to remove the malware.

There is a free version (on demand scanning only), the paid for version
includes active monitoring, similar to Windows defender:

Also free, Malwarebytes Antimalware <http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php>

Please let us know what fixes the problem or if the pÑoblem remains

Good luck

Nobody has answered the question so far.

What have you tried?

In general, the first recommendation is to scan your system with your
updated antivirus and Windows Defender.

In the absence of a currently updated antivirus, I would recommend that you
restart in safe mode with networking, and run a full service scan at
safety.live.com

I've been annoyed by this for awhile now, and it just came to me to go to
Internet Options, then click on Security, the Restricted sites, then add
http://www.Pulse360.com and so far it doesn't pop up anymore.

Thanks. As long as you trust the site, that works. Bear in mind, though,
that even reputable sites have carried infected banner ads.

Thank you for your help. It is very annoying. I did what you said so far so
good.....crossing fingers :)

Yeah, and I had it precisely backwards. My reply implied adding to trusted
sites, rather than restricted sites. Good solution!

I also have been annoyed by this for awhile. I tried the restricted sites
solution long ago but they keep appearing. I added
http://content.pulse.360.com to the restricted sites and it did not work.
When I tried to add the other URL from above in addition to that I could not
because it said it was already in there.Would it help to clear my cache? I
can't stand this pop-up. Thanks.

I suppose putting the unwanted sites in your hosts file will end the
pop-ups.

Good luck,

TRAIN WRECK

SIMPLE; PULSE 360 IS ASSOCIATED WITH MSNBC. GO TO INTERNET TOOLS ON YOUR
BROWSER. GO TO P0P UPS AND CLICK OR OPEN POP-UP SETTINGS.
THE WINDOW THAT YOU SEE WILL SAY ALLOW POP UPS FROM THIS SITE. FIND MSNBC
AND REMOVE THAT FROM THE LIST BY CLICKING IT WHICH HIGHLIGHTS IT AND THEN
DELETE. POOF, PULSE 360 IS HISTORY

Pulse 360

Pulse 360 advertisements may be seen on many sites throughout the web. While
we have direct relationships with these sites, the MSNBC website offers a
window that pops. Sometimes Pulse 360 ads are offered, and sometimes ads by
other companies are offered and visible in this window. The window that pops
up may be controlled simply by going to your internet tools on your browser.
Click on open pop-up settings and list the site(s) you allow this setting.
You may also right click on the pop up, copy the URL, then add it to your
restricted sites.

Please, be rest assured this pop up is not malicious, nor is this spyware.
This is simply a window of advertisements that you may view, and you may opt
out of viewing.

Regards,
Pulse 360
