Yeah, I noticed my pop-up-stopper going nuts lately on the BBS. They are very annoying. The stopper I use is from panicware and it's free. Works fine for me and been using it for several months now.

I use pop up stopper too, and it works great. The free part makes it even better. Try it:

Re: Damn Pop ups - why, why WHY???

I've been using a public domain program called Popup Killer for about a year now . This program works great. I rarely if ever get popups now. If you use the link and download it, send me a EM and I'll send you a copy of my definitions list.

try upgrading versions, panicware is working for me. It is an Expedia pop-up that opens at every click on ORC. It's annoying enough that I will be sure never to visit expedia and I'm slowly be driven from ORC just from the sheer overabundance of them

I downloaded and started using mozilla. it has a function where you can block pop ups from a specific site. works good for me. and best of all it was free. I rarely use IE now. [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Using Opera 7.11 here, not a popup to be seen.

Is it possible the peopel that are getting tons of new ones have some of the spyware junk like gator in their systems?
