Some people's computers are already infected with adware that can cause pop-up windows to occur at any time, whether they have gone to a web page with games on it from Yahoo, MSN, Google or KiddiesGames.com. Such adware was not put there by these websites and has nothing to do with these websites, as can be confirmed by following the above steps when visiting these websites.
If you have a problem when viewing a given website, but other people with the same browser, same anti-virus software and same pop-up-blocker do not have that problem when visiting the same website, this would suggest that your computer is infected with adware or a virus and that there is no problem with the particular website. You will probably want to remove those viruses and adware, which is not always easy. In the meantime, try visiting websites with a different browser. For instance, if you usually use Windows Internet Explorer, then try using the free Mozilla Firefox browser instead. It can be downloaded and installed from www.mozilla.org. It is widely reported that there are many more viruses that only work in Internet Explorer than in other browsers. A browser is the computer program that you use to view the internet and websites. The KiddiesGames.com website can be viewed using any browser, and our games can be played using any browser that has the Macromedia Flash player installed in it, including Windows, Macintosh and even Linux.

...parenting tip of the moment
One of the truly great educators of our time, Haim Ginott, commenting on the powerful influence we have on children, said: "It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather.... I possess a tremendous power to make a child's life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated and a child humanized or dehumanized."
quoted from "Kids are worth it! Giving your child the gift of inner discipline" by Barbara Coloroso, page 24
Small children should be supervised by a caregiver when at a computer,
to ensure no accidents occur that could hurt the child and that no equipment gets broken.
