Sure shouldn't be! I know LATELY whenever I use Internet Explorer, I get the same 4 or 5 pop-ups that my Norton popup protect won't mute. They drive me nuts too, but I'm getting these in BLASTS every few hours whether the forum is on or not.

It sure isn't coming from this end, but I have no idea who and how these things are launched and what gets them around popup blockers.

Mozilla has a preference selection, "open unrequested windows" that, when left unchecked, causes pop-ups to disappear.  No third party software needed to protect us against the aggravation of IE's convenience features.

I have to wonder about the purpose of popups. Nobody likes them so any advertisment value is lost . Why would I want to buy something from someone that annoys me?

Pop-ups are the telemarkting calls of  the net.  Check from your ISP provider about a pop-up blocker or spyware blocker.

I always wondered why telemarketes would waste their time and money on me when for years I never bought a single them from any of them ever.   Signing up for the do-not-call list was great.   Cheesy

Of course, they no longer call you to try sell you anything.  Now, they just want you to "take a survey."      cheesy

Popups are the scourge of the internet made worst since advertising revenue plummeted 90% in 6 months between 1999 & 2000.
Windows XP came with 'Messenger' not to be confused with MSN messenger. This was no problem at 1st but as more advertisers pay for 'Messenger' popups they have become a nightmare for XP users.

There is the cure for Messenger popups within XP. Open the Control Panel from the Start menu. In Category mode click on Performance then Maintenance. Click on Administrative Tools then double click Services. Scroll down the right hand list & double click the Messenger entry. Click the Stop button & select Disable from the Startup menu. Click OK to apply. You should no longer be bothered with these popups

(Not my solution, I've cut and pasted this from another forum!)
