    I like Banner Zapper the best, but you gotta pay for it :/

    What's the best one? I want one that closes the popup before it opens the window, not just close it afterwards!

    Just for farts and giggles, why not check out the following posts:







    It's an annoyingly small button, but this forum also offers a SEARCH function here.

    Don't feel bad, nobody else uses it either!

    The one that was on the front page a couple of weeks ago is the one I'm sticking with. Free Surfer. Ever so simple to use. No setting up, just install & it does its thing. Best of all, it's FREE. :D

    if you're using IE as your browser..i have had the absolute best luck with POPUP COP which can be found Here
    totally customizable..and it works on so much more than just pop ups...also lets you manage scripts..embedded audio/video, active x/java and like 5 billion different things..including a cache cleaner, source viewer - even with multiple panes... it totally rocks.and can be temporarily disabled for any given page..and it integrates very nicely into the IE toolbars section.. i use it exclusively when i surf with IE..

    check it out..it is worth the time..

    Norton Internet Security does a good job for me. It has an ad blocking feature built in. :D

    If you want a very good, and "very" easy to use program, I use Pop-Up Stopper by Panicware, Inc. It's so easy to use, you can't get any simpler. And it works very well. Never had a complaint with it. You can get it at "www.panicware.com"...Oh! and it's free.

    try free adshield .... not only stops popup and advertising banner... it also REMOVES the space for the banner so that no awkward white space or images in place of the banner....

    OK, my bad. If you go to the "Panicware" site, you'll see that we are talking about the same program. I just neglected to put "Companion!" on it when I mentioned the program...but hey, we're both in agreement about the "It kicks bum!" part.
