Pop-ups can be ads, notices, offers, or alerts that open in your current browser window, in a new window, or in another tab. Some pop-ups are third-party ads that use phishing tactics—like warnings or prizes—to trick you into believing they’re from Apple or another trusted company, so you’ll share personal or financial information. Or they might claim to offer free downloads, software updates, or plugins, to try to trick you into installing unwanted software.

Unless you’re confident of an ad’s legitimacy, you should avoid interacting with pop-ups or webpages that seem to take over your screen. Here are additional tips that can help you manage pop-ups and other unwanted interruptions.
Check and update your software
Always make sure you install the latest software updates for all your Apple products. Many software releases have important security updates and may include improvements that help control pop-ups.
The safest place to download apps for your Mac is the App Store. If you need third-party software for your Mac, and it isn’t available in the App Store, get it directly from the developer or another reliable source, rather than through an ad or link.

Make sure Safari security settings are turned on, particularly Block Pop-ups—for pop-up windows—and the Fraudulent Website Warning.
On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, go to Settings > Safari and turn on Block Pop-ups and Fraudulent Website Warning.
On your Mac, you can find these options in Safari > Preferences. The Websites tab includes options to block some or all pop-up windows, and you can turn on fraudulent site warnings in the Security tab.

Pop-ups and ads in Safari
If you see an annoying pop-up ad in Safari, you can go to the Search field and enter a new URL or search term to browse to a new site. If you don’t see the Search field on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, tap the top of the screen to make it appear.
Some pop-ups and ads have fake buttons that resemble the close button, so use caution if you try to close a pop-up or ad. If you're unsure, avoid interacting with the pop-up or ad and close the Safari window or tab.
Kindle app for mac os. On your Mac, you can also update your settings to prevent windows from opening again after you close Safari, or just press and hold the Shift key when you open Safari.
If you might have installed adware or other unwanted software on your Mac
If you see pop-ups on your Mac that just won’t go away, you might have inadvertently downloaded and installed adware (advertising-supported software) or other unwanted software. Certain third-party download sites might include programs that you don’t want with the software that you install.
If you think that you might have malware or adware on your Mac, update to the latest version of macOS. If your Mac is already running the latest version, restart it. macOS includes a built-in tool that removes known malware when you restart your Mac.
Check your Applications folder to see if you have any apps that you didn’t expect and uninstall them. You can also check the Extensions tab in Safari preferences to check if you installed any unnecessary extensions that you'd prefer to turn off. If you continue to see advertising or other unwanted programs on your Mac, contact Apple.

Hm, I've been dreading the battery and power failure beeps with my new APC UPSs. But I don't think the consumer models, I have BackUps LS and CS, have the option to control the alert sounds. Previous models I had were BackUps Pros, and I used the Windoze Powerchute in virtualization to turn off the sounds. I did not see any alert sound options for the CS and LS.
A warning about the installer (I like to poke inside strange new installers, especially from open source): it installs things in system locations, /sbin, /etc & /usr/share, when they should be installed in /usr/local/*. Stuff in system locations has the potential to be removed by Apple updaters, and it's good to have 3rd-party software outside the system, especially for ease of uninstalling.
Why bother? The built-in software (Energy Saver) is good enough.
Never needed anything beyond that. If you wanted, I'm sure AppleScript and/or Automator could be added for more needs.
> Why bother?
Maybe for the reason described in the first paragraph of colinng's hint? I've used apcupsd precisely for that purpose.
> The built-in software (Energy Saver) is good enough. Never needed anything beyond that.
Good (enough) for you.
> If you wanted, I'm sure AppleScript and/or Automator could be added for more needs.
Do you a specific method to suggest for disabling APC UPS beeps instead of simply a think-you-know-better response?
Thanks for writing up this hint, colinng. Hopefully a few folks will appreciate it.
> Thanks for writing up this hint, colinng. Hopefully a few folks will appreciate it.
D'oh! I just accidentally gave it a 1- instead of 5-star vote… sorry.
Does the built-in monitor more than one UPS? Does it send email notifications?
What a strange comment. Clearly there is value in silencing the beeping noise- I'm going to have mine mute during the night.
I'm going to have mine mute during the night.Minimally, I think that would require a script to interact with apctest to enable/disable beeping using the '6) View/Change alarm behavior' item (shown in the list thwaite posted) or similar. Then cron (for instance) could be used to run that script, with an enable or disable option, at desired intervals.
Setting BEEPSTATE to 'N' (or other values) in apcupsd.conf doesn't apparent to have any effect on the alarm, at least not that I could determine with some brief testing this morning.
I always realize there's a power outage when I'm on/near my home systems and awake to possibly take action. Plus now there's less intrusive Growl notification. And I normally don't want/need to care about outages while asleep. So, I used apctest to change the alarm behavior to unconditionally never beep since there's no reason for it in this context.
This is a useful utility, and the author’s reasons are good: APC software doesn’t give full control even for beeps, much less for network notifications (tho I don’t use these). Don’t expect AppleScript or Automator would expand it.
More usefully, I’ll report:
* the utility works fine on my “ICBM” (heh), a late ‘09 iMac. I finally got a UPS just for it, APC’s BE750G and was annoyed by APC’s limited controls, tho happy that OSX itself does the basic controls nicely (aside: regret that I read the macintouch writer Robert Mohn’s recommendation for iDowell’s iBox and iPack UPS's only later, tho they cost at least twice as much: macintouch.com/reviews/idowell )
* the installer for apcusd is simple, but doesn’t warn that a reboot will be required to complete the install. It does open TextEdit to display two windows, one with the apcupsd.conf file, the other with a notice that you have to edit this configuration file for your specific UPS and should do this before agreeing to the installer's request to reboot. You might be able to skip this step but should read through the config file now to ensure its default settings match your situation. And you’ll need to later edit this .conf file if you want to add network reporting, which can’t be set up using only the simple CLI menu.
* This config file is at /private/etc/apcupsd/apcupsd.conf. But its permissions are read-only so you can't save changes using TextEdit, which doesn't allow superuser override. Solution: use the Terminal (which you'll have to use anyway for their CLI menu). Navigate to the directory and sudo-launch your favorite CLI text editor (vim, pico, etc).
Having a little Unix knowledge, I lived dangerously and edited various parameters as suggested by their comments. Recall that lines prefaced by # are comments, often useful example settings; but for functional parameter specifications you must remove the #.
* After rebooting, the CLI menu allows for the following choices:
1) Test kill UPS power
2) Perform self-test
3) Read last self-test result
4) View/Change battery date
5) View manufacturing date
6) View/Change alarm behavior
7) View/Change sensitivity
8) View/Change low transfer voltage
9) View/Change high transfer voltage
10) Perform battery calibration
11) Test alarm
12) View/Change self-test interval
I’ve not yet tried #1 or #10, but the others work as expected.
Another great feature of apcupsd is that you can install it on more than one machine, and each can communicate with the other. If you have several machines that are powered from the same battery, you can set up apcupsd to shut all of the machines down gracefully before the battery runs out. You can also do lots of other cool things, limited only by your imagination.
For instance, I have two Mac minis in my server closet, and when power goes out and the battery is almost out of juice, on each machine, apcupsd quits all user-space applications (with an Applescript run through the 'osascript' command-line tool, schedules a 'wakeorpoweron' event with the power manager so the machine will reboot once power is restored, and then shuts the system down.
The software also works fine with Intel-based Macs.
APC make good UPSs but their Mac software stinks (to put it mildly).
While their wilful neglect of Macs in terms of software provision might have been justified the many years ago when the Mac market was in serious decline, the massive increase in Mac share in more recent years has led other more sensible companies to resume providing decent Mac support. Even Microsoft have improved their Mac support :)
People might also be interested in the open-source NUTS project (Network Ups ToolS), see http://www.networkupstools.org/ and http://boxster.ghz.cc/projects/nut/wiki/NutOnMacOSX this will work with other makes as well as APC.

No output if apcupsd isn't running. Otherwise, it'll look similar to:

What to suggest next depends on the results.
Are you running your intel chip with OSX's 64-bit kernel? I get your error msg with 64bit though it works fine for me with 32-bit. Hmph.
My system log shows this during the boot:
Mar 19 12:15:04 RG-iMac com.apple.SystemStarter: Starting UPS monitoring

I've not time to follow up on this just now.
Yep, running in 64-bit..
Ah well :-)
Since I didn't see it mentioned in the other posts, I thought I'd add that the apcupsd installer places an application--apcupsd.app--in the /Applications folder.
When launched, no dock icon or interface window will open. Instead, your only indication that it is running is the appearance in the menubar of a generic UPS icon. Should a connection failure occur, the icon will acquire a superimposed red '?', and hovering the mouse over the icon will reveal the tooltip 'NETWORK ERROR'. Clicking on the icon reveals the available interface options.
The GUI's available functions are pretty much limited to status and event monitoring, and provide no equivalent for issuing the CLI commands. It is handy, though, in that it provides the ability, via the preferences settings, to add additional monitors for multiple networked devices, and to turn Growl notifications on and off for them.
Just in case someone else is having the same difficulties I encountered, take a look at your UPS cases.
The battery backup I couldn't get apcupsd to find--among the several it did find--was labeled 'Belkin.'
D'Oh! <forehead slap>
The NUTS software I referred to in a previous comment, does support various Belkin models as well as APC models (and others).
Mac Os X Ups Software Update
I don't think this utility is ready for primetime. I installed it and decided to uninstall it. Dragged it to the trash, found the startup item, dragged that to the trash, emptied the trash, and rebooted. Now my UPS no longer shows up in Energy Saver under System Preferences!
It says in the documentation that a dummy kernel extension is installed to prevent OS X from recognizing the UPS, but darned if I can find it. Help, please!

Just had the same problem. You need to go to terminal and run sudo /sbin/apcupsd-uninstall. This will get rid of all the related code. Reboot and your APC should show up in energy saver again.
