    Can anyone recommend a good pop up stopper, i'm sick and tired of them randomly opening and cluttering up my space...

    Also, does anyone know of any software that can get rid of banner ad's too, there another thing that annoys the hell out of me..

    If you're willing to try a new browser then these have in-built pop-up blocking
    Opera - http://opera.com
    FireBird - http://texturizer.net/firebird/
    Mozilla - http://mozilla.org

    But for IE, there are seperate apps such as these (not tried them myself..)
    PopUp Popper - http://bayden.com/popper
    PopUp Ad Filter - http://www.meaya.com/download.htm
    PopUp Cop - http://www.popupcop.com/
    Google's Toolbar - http://google.com
    PopUp Ad Zero - http://www.1stnetsoft.com/
    PopUp Stopper - http://www.panicware.com/
    Ad Muncher - http://www.admuncher.com/

    And I'm sure there's plenty more.. :)

    I have used panickware's popup stopper and it's great, but now use the one with the new google and I feel it's doing a good job.

    im thinking you should be running spyware software as well if there random pop ups, like when your not even using internet explorer and something pops up.
