Me too, in the few weeks I have had it, it's been great. Try it out at http://toolbar.google.com/

I don't know what you are talking about fortunately, but I use a popup killer.

Hey Steve,

I get them even when I loggon. They are if you do not want these Popups use.. All kind of adds. Dose the Goggle bar prevent them when you use your favorites drop bar.. Dose not seem to work for me..

Sounds like you have some spyware on your comp. Download AD-AWARE and REGCLEANER (Jouni Vuori's version) and run them. That should take care of the problem.
