    I am constantly plagued by internet explorer pop ups whilst using AOL. When I say constantly, that is just what I mean, They fill my screen every 30 seconds or so. It is becoming almost impossible to be online.

    Thank you

    One obvious solution would be to stop using AOL... ;)

    Another solution is to use a browser with a pop-up stopper already integrated. Opera 7 is excellent, Touchnet, Tabrowser, just to name a few.

    If you want to hang on to IE, meaya pop-up filter always worked well when I used IE.

    I guess it's just what you like.

    @koko: That's a wicked mask, and I really like the picture of the dolphin over your right shoulder :D

    Cheers
