    Very popular topic each time. You will probably get at least ten completely different answers. I usually recommend PopUpCop.

    I've only used the one and it's called 'Pop Up Killer' (oddly) seems OK but I'm going to check out the others (and report back) as dealer suggested... wait where's the link?

    i also use pop up killer and it works great with one exception it seems to eat ram like its going out of style i have 448 megs of ram and the only thing in my system tray are "volume","pop up killer",and"win ram turbo"which keeps my systems ram from reaching a critical low but with pop up killer it goes from 448 megs down to about 223 megs is that normal?hey guys i have another question for you all.all them different pop up stoppers you listed about out of them which ones alows you to add the pop up address to a list so that pop up will never open with the software enabled

    AdShield works great for me. No popups yet to report. Its integrated with IE, so you dont have to load it separately, and you dont even know its running. As to how much RAM it uses, I'm not quite sure, so if anybody knows, fill me in.

    Otherwise, use Mozilla 1.1 which has a built in adblocker which works great for me.

  11. The best is the one that comes with Norton Personal Firewall 2003. It blocks web ads, and if possible, shrinks the size of the page to accommodate for this blank space. Pop ups, unlike some pop-up killers are selectively neutralized with the best engine I have ever seen to stop pop ups. So far, I have never had any pop-ups I have actually wanted to see (clicked on) closed and only 2 pop-ups that I didn't want weren't closed (this is one month now). These results are astounding since I go to... lets just say the sites I go to are well known for pop-ups.

    I second FreeSurfer. I have used most of the ones out there and without a doubt FreeSurfer has worked best for me.

    Nobody mentions AdSudtract (pro) wich is a pop-up stopper, ad-blocker, cookie manager and internetcleaner in one. It works very intelligent (faked proxy). And it updates regulary. I´m very satisfied.
