I may have seen it discussed here. I finally got DSL up after three months of waiting since ordering it when I moved into my new apartment. These things are driving me crazy.

You should be able to get rid of most of them by dis-abling the java options in your internet browser. It's in the security section I believe.

Try Popup Stopper. Search for it on Download.com. Works pretty good, 'specially when you hit a lot of pages with popup ads. In XP, there's a utility called Tweak XP that has it's own popup killer.

There's another good one called addsubtract. You can get it free at downloads.com. Be aware that some of these interfere with certain message boards, especially VB ones like GlockTalk and AK-47.net. Addsubtract has both a list of exempted sites and a disable feature.

Disabling java can sometimes limit desireable graphics. An easy way to dodge popups and cookie profiling is to surf using the safeweb proxy server. Go to [url]www.safeweb.com[/url]

Concur with fencer, Pop-Up stopper. Been using it for a week now and it's pretty good. For pop-windows that you do need to see all you do is hold down the CTRL key and it'll allow it. The only thing it's a 30 day trial and then you pay $15 or so, but worth the test drive and $15 if it works out.

Disabling Java probably won't help you. Try turning off the JavaScript. This might affect some sites that do some nice tricks. If your browser lets you just disable the javascript open command, that would be the best and easiest way

Try the following link: [url]www.software.xfx.net/utilities/popupkiller/tsguide/index.html[/url] I've been using this one for a month or so now. Seems to work pretty good. Only thing, is that it will close a popup related to some sites that you visit(for example, if I click on Board Code, it will close that window. But you can disable it whenever you want.)

On one end you have companies like Microsoft and Gator who are replacing sites advertising with their own. Link [url]http://news.cnet.com/news/0-1005-200-6797640.html[/url] On the other end you have companies like MSNBC who think it’s better to save those thirty popups until you visit someone else’s site or make them flash objects so you can’t close them. Right in the shitty middle you’ve got the guys who run the sites like this one. (Just trying to get paid for their work) and people showing off their |\/|4|) 1337 (0|)3r $|
