    I often use a streaming website called the dare hub. I have two pop up blockers and used to work all the time but now some sites like vidzi have a pop up that gets through. its just a blank page and then a PDF viewer box pops down from my chrome browsers. my question is can you get viruses from a blank pop up page and clicking OK on the PDF box?

    What come with most pop-ups are Adware, PUP, and not computer viruses. Did you notice any downloading proceedings after your click? As long as you did not download and execute any file from that Vidzi pop-up, your PC is safe. To ensure that your computer is clean, better run a virus scan on the computer. Scanning the computer with other tools like MalwareBytes Anti-malware and AdwCleaner is also important to see if there are any malicious files on your computer.
