popup killers

Anybody got a good one?

I always get the same old crap:

-I've been the 10 millionth visitor to an imaginary website for the 11 millionth time.

-The gay dating resource has me on their "a" list somehow, I guess I paid one too many visits to the Canucks home page

- 200$ credit at some stupid online casino, I live within two blocks of two different casinos, and I'd never gamble online anyways.

- orbitz has some cool popups. "dunk the punk" was good for a laugh, and I can always strike out that batter now.


I think that when you join Kazaa and MSN you agree to accept their sponsors though, does having a popup killer affect them?

I use ad-aware u should be able to get a hacked one off kazaa.

U can also do the msn messenger trick which helps a lot

->click Start button
-> then run
->type in msconfig
->click on the services tab
-> scroll down till u see a service called messenger then uncheck the box
->restart
->this thing pops-up click box tell it not to show u the message again presto

Dude, you are my hero.

I just started up internet exploder and haven't had a single popup yet!
My boot-up time just went down by 50% too!


Does this affect my automatic updates for Windows and Norton anti-virus?

No, Norton and auto-updates will run fine, messenger is just some stupid thing that Micro$oft put in with tons of vulnerabilites that let people spam ads to u. I'd be careful with auto-update though windows released one patch about 6months ago that slowed peoples comps down by about 40%

you can also try the google toolbar

http://toolbar.google.com/

blocks pop-ups and gives you google search on your IE toolbar, I love it.

I have a GREAT one that I downloaded off of Kazza. It's called "Pop-Up Stopper". I would say it eliminates about 98% of pop-up windows (some still find a way to get through). Plus you can set cool sounds everytime it stops a pop up (Daddy why is the computer burping ). Anyway the website for it is http://www.panicware.com/
