I do not use explorer. I have windows XP. Mozilla Firefox. As I under stand it, Mozilla Firefox has it's own blocker. I get no pop-ups, except (Timed Out) Check your settings, Mine does best on default setting.
I use hotmail and Yahoomail.
I Google and wick-a-pedia
Terra Sever, and Bee master :roll: :)
When I find anything that causes a lock up, I don't use it any more.
I was using Internet checkers and kept getting lock ups, so I took it plumb out of the system.

The computer will recognize it as (pirate, counterfeit,etc.)
Had to redo mine because of it.
Now-a-days My Machine and I are doing ok.
Getting ready for the snow that is supposed to hit Georgia tomorrow. :roll: :)doak
