    I have the host file that is used to eliminate popups, but it doesn't remove all popups.

    I was wondering how you find the web address that needs blocking. For excample.

    www.acewallpapers.com

    has the free gift popup and the casino one. I want to remove them.

    I understand how to add them to the host file. I just don't know what the webaddress is.

    How do I find it?

    I prefer SMASHER. It closes popups as quick as they open. And there is no need to add URLs. It is setup to go.

    www.popupstop.com

    Check it out for yourself.
