First of all, yes i did read the FAQ...
I still get POP-UP windows when i run kazaa, overnet emule and such...
They are not browser pop ups but Windows-popups like the ones u get when something happens in windows. They are commercial popups and when i "ok-click" them away, a download starts wich i have to cancel. The anoying thing is that they seem to interrupt downloads in kazaa so leaving on the machine while i am not around to kill the popups is senseless as downloads are interrupted after a couple of minutes when the next ad pops up.
I tried to de-install windows messenger like statet in the "Tips - sections" using this command : RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\inf\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove
it didn't help though.
I am on DSL behind a D-Link 604 Router with DMZ activated on my machine. Yes, that probably IS the reason for the ad-pop ups.
But isn't there a way to stop those pop-ups any other way than putting the Router-Firewall back up and opening all the ports i need? I am an advanced user, but router configuartion still is a new field to me. Also, english is not my mother tounge which makes technical terms even more cryptic.
Someone told me, he stops em with his Firewall. I am using ZoneAlarm Pro, didn't help me out.
Does someone have the same problem and came up with a solution?
I would be thankfull for any help.
P.S. I tried to search this section of the forum, but when i start searching, i get to a page where it says i am not signed in... hmmm So please, if there already is an answer to this in the forum, please post a direct link? Coolness.
Thanks again for any help!
