Re: blocking pop-ups and ads on webpages ? - 02-07-2009, 02:41 AM
Back when I was running XP and IE6 on my desktop, my ISP had a free pop-up blocker called Pop-up Stopper. It's like an add-on for Internet Explorer and worked great. The original website for downloading it is no longer there, but I found they have a WordPress site with a link to the free add-on. http://www.panicware.com/?page_id=25
You could also upgrade to IE7, if you haven't already, as that has a built-in popup blocker...or as other posters suggested, install Firefox. I love the AdBlock Plus plugin!
