Hi,

You can use adBlock plus

Commented:
Adblock plus is a good solution, but  I would also recommend that you scan the system with Malwarebytes.

You can download it for free here:

It could be that your system is infected.

Foresee is not a virus or malware. I see it on some sites myself. I just close it.

Commented:
You are absolutely right John.  I had never come across one of these surveys.  Sounded malicious based on the description. Here is a link to a site that has more information about Foresee and how to remove it.

I added to adblock plus add your own filters

I test by going to
http://www.foresee.com/our-customers/industries/retail-ecommerce/

which has its own popup
