1. Use firefox, it has built in pop-up blocking
2. There is a piece of software called ad-blocker I think. It's icon is a cow.

Google toolbar, no pop-ups, works great for me. You can allow pop-ups on specific sites too, like here so the "You have a PM" box will still work.

Get these things and use them (all free)

www.download.com is where you can find most of this stuff.

Mozilla Firefox
Ad Aware
Spybot Search and Destroy
CCleaner
Tweak Now Registry Cleaner

Kerio Personal Firewall (Blocks ads)
Go here and click download http://www.kerio.com/us/kpf_download.html

Run those weekly and stop using Internet Explorer all together.

Also run Disk Cleanup, Scan Disk, and Defragmenter every week.


All that stuff will keep your computer clean, free of crap, and running at optimum speed.

Oh BTW use AVG (Made by Grisoft) for a good virus software.

Yes, I probably am. That's why I included the bit about the cow, I was sure someone would correct me.

If you're getting popups while using firefox, then you most likely have something else going on on your pc. Time to look at the processes running in the background...

I've only gotten 3 popups while using firefox. They aren't opened with javascript, but I didn't take the time to check into it either in order to figure it out...

Disc Cleanup takes a while, yes.

CCleaner does the same thing Disc Cleanup does, and more.
Disc Cleanup does clean a little peice of your computer that isnt that important, which CCleaner misses.
