    i use norton internet security it has never vlocked a window that is supose to come up and only once in a blue moon does a pop up get through and you can manuallly block it then.

    Turn off Windows Messenger. Check out BlackViper.com for instructions

    As for the pop ups, just get a browser like Opera or Firebird that has pop up blocking built in. I use both browsers and I haven't seen an unwanted pop up yet.

    ad-aware just lets you scan for adwares after they've been installed on your cpu
    try going to astalavista and see how many pop-ups you run into
    (before i installed ad muncher i was gettin barraged by em) not 1 now

    oh yeah, and a good hosts file helps too, but you kinda gotta build it to your preferences

    Please do a search on the forum for Pop up blockers and testers. There has been a topic before where we measured the statistics of each program to see its efficiency. Ad Muncher i believe came out to be very good.

    There is no need to go into discussions which one is the best, you can find that yourself in that thread.

    For messenger popup's you have to shut down your messenger service.
