Need a good Pop-up blocker
    #1876261 - 09/03/03 02:01 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Does anyone know of any good pop-up blockers I can download for free? I've been getting way too many pop-up ads lately.

If you still use internet suxplorer, you can download the Google toolbar which has a pretty decent pop-up blocker.

But more importantly, check out like Mozilla Firebird - FB is a real internet-lovers browser & it has a built-in pop-up blocker and much much more :smile: Very customizable too.

hope this helps :thumbup:

I've already got the Google toolbar. The Mozilla thing looks good, but I'd rather not get a new browser. Thanks anyway, tho.

Analog X is the program I use. It gets a high rating from users, mine has blocked 943 popups to date. You do have to tell it which windows you want to "pop out" but after that youll never see them again. This also insures you don't block out anything you need.

I use Opera as an internet browser, and it fixes the popup problem entirely. Also has tabs, and mouse-gestures, which I rather appreciate.

Make sure you dont have spyware on your comp that is shooting up popups.

I probably do, but I don't know how to find it.

Try either ad-aware or spybot. Both do a nice job finding spyware although I like spybot a bit better.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

why do you prefer spybot over adaware? I use both, but right now I am leaning more to adaware - perhaps I simply like the pretty interface over the ugly look of spybot :smile: Seems more smooth and less buggy than spybot, too. Both seem quite adequate however.

peace :thumbup:

Thanks. I've downloaded spybot and haven't had any problems since.

meaya popup ad filter works like a charm!
http://meaya.com/

ps. this one time, this priest's friend's great grandpa's chinchilla ate too much salsa before bed one night and had a dream in which she got zip a file from kazaa that contained meaya's ad filter and a working keygen for it.

And they all lived happily ever after!

amen

I use a program called adshield. It works very well and it's free. Just do a search on google.
