    Just found a new app that kills those annoying pop up urls when you are using IE XX.

    Pop up Killer 4 thumbs up!!!

    Can be found at http://www.mypersonalsoftware.com/

    Download a trial, and if you like it is only 7 bux, good price and great effectiveness.

    :D :p :cool:

    Personally, I use SMASHER (www.popupstop.com). It has other features besides stopping popup ads (which can be configured to allow popups from sites). It also blocks cookies (can be configured to allow cookies from your favorite sites) and stops web bugs (1x1 images that can track your movement on the web).

    See http://www.privacyfoundation.org/resources/glossary.asp#Web Bug for information.

    Some newer features included is the ability to stop those floating (Java) ads and flash ads. And you can set SMASHER up to filter content. The latest versions also include a one click updater that automatically updates to the latest version.

    Over all, I highly recommend you at least trying SMASHER. Ken, the author, puts countless hours of work into it. Give it a try, and if you like it, it's only like $20 with free updates for life (last I knew anyway).
