    Good point ! I was teasing about the Adblock and pop ups .

    While a great combo , FF and adblock would 't solve all of popwars troubles . His problem reminds me of some of my buddies questions that I get all the time .

    "Fucking pop ups Peat what should I do ?"

    Pop ups ? What browser you using ?

    "Browers ? Oh just the internet . "

    Oh ok , what anti virus do you use and have you updated it ?

    'Ya the one you gave me ."

    Hmm that was over two years ago , no ?

    i dono what peat moss is talking about, lol, but if all else fails - zone alarm internet security suite has everything you need (yes, a pop up blocker).
    i'm not saying you need it, by far. i don't use it because and i use a combo of spybot, avg free, and sygate pf pro (using firefox if that counts too). plus it uses too much CPU/RAM for my flimsy laptop.

    I also suggest to switch to firefox. I never have popups with it. Since I switched browsers, I never would go back to IE. Give it a try. There are many great addons too.
