    There are so many anti pop up programs out there that I don't know what to choose. I just want a simple one that works well and that doesn't use much resources.

    I tried StopZilla and was not impressed at all. Anyone have any suggestion?

    pop up filter.
    best one i can recommend.

    its really good and doesn't use more than 2mb of memory. (guess)

    also. mozilla and firebird, usally have a feature where you can say "Block Unwanted Pop-Ups". preatty smart way of getting around those pesky pop-ups.

    I've tried a lot of them...

    PopUpCop is the best IMHO.

    The only thing it doesn't catch is those JAVA floaters.

    I agree, I have been very impressed with PopUpCop, did a trial and then bought it.:)

    PopUp Popper, its free and easy to use. Basically is asks you all the time is you want to allow or block the popup. You can even allow all or block all from certain cites.

    Actually I just downloaded pop this. It installs as a boh and is very minimal. Just kinda runs in the background of OE

    Hear hear...It only allows popups you click for, it can be disabled/enabled quickly by pressing scroll lock, and lets you pick and choose lists of sites to allow or block, as well as blocking popups individually.

    I like NIS to be honest. It's a firewall with an 'ad-blocker' and antivirus all-in-one.
    You can add to the ad-blocker list the websites that manages to get through pop-up blocker.

    Opera has a pop-up blocked inside of it; and you can turn it off as needed. Also google bar stops block ups.

    I'm with ming on this one, Norton Firewall kills two birds with one stone. Not perfect, but close enough.

    The new IE Google Search bar has a pop-up stopper and form fill in option. Pop-up cop is best, IMHO, since it prohibits automatic downloads of scripts as well.
