do you like the taste of your foot in your mouth or what?
do you leave your socks on or do you take them off before you insert foot?
there are plenty of programs, some are free, some are not, that stop pop up ads and banners.
right now i am using a program called no ads. it works pretty well and its easy to use. it shows you what windows are open and you can add the popups to a list that will stop them from ever coming up again. if you put the wrong window into the list you can take it back out again. its a small prog that sits in your toolbar
so you can open it when you want. its supposed to detect the ad windows and automatically close them but its not always consistent. i like it because i have control over which windows it stops from opening and because its so unobtrusive.
of course there are lots more programs out there. here is a link to where you can "shop" for them and download:
another good one is ad muncher but thats shareware (you get a free trial but when it expires it stops working). i loved that prog...no popups opened EVER. but it expired and im too cheap to pay for software.
dont be afraid to download new things on your comp. sometimes these progs work and sometimes they dont. if they dont just delete them and try something else. on the other hand, dont download something if you cant even understand the description.
you probably wont be able to get it to work.
hope this helps
