Thread: What Is The Popup On

  1. #1
    When I do a search or browse I get a strange popup as part of the page with some add. This popup is part of the suprnova page and does not show up as a separate explorer window. I tried disabling java and JavaScript but that did not help.

    Anyone know how it is generated and how to stop it. And please no "use a different browser" replies.

    Found it, it is caused by this script:

    &#60;script>var str="<body style="margin:0;padding:0"><iframe width=0 height=0 src=""></iframe><head><title>new offer for you&#33;</title>";var appendix="";var str1="</head><object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase=",0,2,0"";str1 += "id=banner width="100%" height="100%"><param name=movie value=""><param name=quality value=high><embed src="" quality=high";str1 += "swliveconnect=false width="100%" height="100%" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage=""></embed></object></body>";function checkblocked(){if (blocked==1){window.showmodelessdialog("",0,"scroll:0;dialogtop:0px;dialogleft:0px;help:no;status:no;dialogheight:"+wheight+"px;dialogwidth:"+wwidth+"px");}}var wwidth=404;var wheight=440;var wleft=(screen.availwidth-wwidth)/2;var wtop=(screen.availheight-wheight)/2;var blocked=1;settimeout("checkblocked()",5000);var"","new1","width="+wwidth+",height="+wheight+",left=10000,top=10000");msg.focus();msg.document.write(str+appendix+str1);function moveit(){if (&#33;msg.closed) msg.moveto(wleft,wtop);}settimeout("moveit()",5000);</script>

    I will try locking at it to see how it opens a popup without registering a new page and try to stop it. If anyone can help me that would be great.

    One way to possibly prevent the pop-up ads is to add this to your Windows HOSTS file:

    # SuprNova website pop-up ads -- they have [torrent files are not allowed] files there

    The pop-up ads may still occur, but they&#39;ll either be empty or contain &#39;this page cannot be displayed&#39;.

    Better pop-up blocking methods will prevent those outright -- either by blocking pop-ups in general or specifically blocking those sites.

    Why won&#39;t you use another browser?
