    Oh man, I wish I had known about pressing the shift or control key. Popup stopper drove me crazy because I couldn't open multiple browser windows when I needed to. I thought it was an IE defense against users trying to delete popup ads. So I installed it. gak! I guess I'll give it another go. Thanks for that tidbit!

    "Pop-up blocking software just consumes system resources and those things are usually buggy as heck."

    Popup stopper is a tiny program. All it does is prevent another browser window from being opened unless you press the shift or control key. I've been using it over a year and haven't had a bit of problem with it.

    The whole X10 thing doesn't work if you erase your cookies, like I do regularly.

    All you have to do is edit the DAY number in that URL, and you can set it for as long as you wish:
    This one should work for a year: http://www.x10.com/home/optout.cgi?D...om/x10ads1.htm

    I highly advise clearing your cookies regularly anyway, so the 30-day cookie isn't really an issue. Pop-up blocking software just consumes system resources and those things are usually buggy as heck.

    I use "Naviscope". Works great, and you can tell when the 'net is "hung up".

    Naviscope

    Free download, and works like it says.

    I use the Ad-aware 5.0, I heard about the X10 ad thing on TechTv, but never gave it a try, maybe I will now.

    Just get the popup stopper Dave linked to in another thread. It's free, downloads and installs fast and works GREAT!. I've been using it for about a year.

    The problem with that is that it expires and you have to never erase your cookies during that time period.

    The pop-up stopper works great.
