Please describe your question/comment in detail (for example, steps to reproduce the problem):
For others to best assist you in troubleshooting scenarios, please also provide the following:
Google Chrome version (type in about:version into the address bar):
URLs (if applicable):
I recently (1 month) got a new laptop and installed Chrome and use it as my primary browser. Recently (this week) I started receiving pop-ups that are by-passing Google Chrome's system. How can I add these to the list of pop-ups to block. I have not disabled pop-up blocking. Other answers to a similar question would take a programmer to understand and follow. Please explain in lamen's terms.
OS - MS Windows XP Pro
GC V8: 126.96.36.199
URL pop-up: www.theinternetsurvey.com/a/ - Windows Internet Explorer (please note that IE was not open at the time and the pop-up window has the GC logo at the beginning of the URL string)
Don't know what an "Extention" is so I'm not sure which (if any) are installed.

Stefan, thanks for answering but I need more help.
Unfortunately, the pop-ups I'm getting are not being detected by GC. The enemy have found a way around Google's defenses! The URL I listed in my original question is just one of many that are getting through. Is there a way for me to manually add and open window to the list of blocked pop-ups? Again, I am not a programmer and need a fairly straight forward process.
BTW, it would be great if there was a way to notify Google directly about this problem. This forum seem to be the only option I could find on getting help.

it's just one of those things we ALL have to put up with.

The pop-ups that I'm getting are new. I had GC on my new laptop and used it with no pop-ups for the first month. Something changed in the past week that is allowing this. I still run GC on my old laptop that I kept as a back up and I am not getting these on it. Currently have both up & running GC and this laptop gets pop-ups and my other doesn't.
I'm running Symantec Endpoint Protection (my corp provided security suite) and it isn't detecting any malware. I don't file swap or perform any high-risk activity with this lap-top. I believe this is something new that I'd like to make sure that Google is aware of. Is there a way to notify them directly?

I've just recently begun to use Google Chrome as my browser. Whenever I go to the Chicago Suntimes website a popup occurs. I have pop ups blocked, but the ones from the Suntimes still get through. How can I stop this? I'm using Windows 7 Pro as my OS.
I never had this problem with IE9.
