    No popups for me...

    check out "IESPYADS" and Steve Martins hosts file. Also look at The Proxomitron.

    not sure if this applies to yourself but..
    apparently yahoo messenger has a flaw which allows ppl to send these pop up type adverts. find out what port these things are coming thru and block them.
