the ongoing search for good popup blocking software

I used proxomitron for a long time but it tends to block too many things that aren't ads. Then I switched to the Meaya pop up stopper and it didn't catch a lot of the ads. Now I'm back at the proxomitron and becoming frustrated again because its blocking normal content. Any suggestions?


Pop Up Cop
Simple the best!!!! I am using it for a long time and no problem at all!!!!!
The BEST pop-up/ad blocker...

HOSTS file

Open your host file. c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\HOSTS

Add lines such as this... ad.doubleclick.net anysite.thatyouhate.com

When IE goes to open a pop-up window it looks for it on your PC. Since it does not exist IE doesn't even open it.

When you find a new site you hate... add it to the list.
It of course works if you aren't running a web server. I have not tried it running a webserver, but I would be interested to know if it works
Personally, I must say that my favorite is Popup Popper. It's absolutely free, simple, and lets you pick and choose which sites to allow or disallow. And you can always edit the lists!


I may actually be insane.
Mozilla, Firebird, Opera, K-meleon and probably more, are all browsers that have in-built pop-up blocking. Works great too :)


Norton Personal Firewall
AMAZING!!! trust me.
not only does it protect against attackers, i blocks all them ads that popup and show up on your browser.

The beta toolbar for google works well, it received a 9/9 on the pop-up stopper test for me anyway. Works great.:p
