Anyone have any Pop UP advise?

  1. I get these dang pop ups regularly. I put the firewall up but they continue. Anyone have a good pop up program that really works?

    Thanks in advance.

    What kind of pop-ups are you getting, Bonnie? Are they the gray messenger service kind? The ones where half of them say "to stop messages like this from popping us go here" and the other half are for porn sites? Here is a Dell page that explains how to close your Windows messenger service (won't affect your ability to use MSN IM or AOL IM's) so you don't get them anymore:

    Bil thinks highly of Ad aware

    I have only just down loaded it myself so I can't give any information.

    Ad-aware works well for web page based pop-ups.

    Try panicware.com

    They have a free pop-up stopper; sometimes you will need to deactivate it to see links, because it will read the link as a pop-up, but since I put it on I've stopped getting all those annoying "grow a larger *****" pop-ups, and all those other annoying ones.

    Use a browser other than Explorer.

    Mozilla stops pop ups. And it's free.
