    The one that I use and Recommend is POW!! From analogX it is a Free small Download, that contains no adware, or Spyware. It is Free, with a clean interface and Works Really Great too. And the instructions are included in the Read me Files that come with the software . And it is Compatable with all versions of windows. It is a stand alone program, and it doesn't use no Cpu Resourses hardly at all. But with it you do have to turn it on Mannually after you boot up to your desk top. And after you conect to the internet (if your on dial up ) . But I just love it. it is free in Cost , and free of spyware, and adware too. But that is up to you to decide tho. Then to the tools and Utilties section there and grab you a copy if you want to. Less than 2 mins. to d/l on a modem . lol

    Dawg, Does this free Popup Stopper get Banner Ads too? And do they keep it updated? And is it Free from Spyware, and malware? Just curious is all. if So I may think about Changing to it since it does support more browsers now such as yahoo's browser as well as IE's too

    denim,

    ..right click on the dot exe, such as:
    start>programs>[and wherever you have it], right click POW!>send to>desktop create shortcut>[window pops up telling you it will be placed on the sesktop, click ok],

    ..and in w9.x
    ..open C:\WINDOWS>Start Menu folder>Programs folder>StartUp folder>drag-drop/cut-paste the shortcut you created into this folder,
    ..it'll start when windows starts now, or just leave the shortcut on the desktop and click on it to start it when you go surfin',

    ..other ways to do it also, but this is about the easiest,

    ..cookiewall on that site works well also,


    hope this helped,
    have a good day,

    You can use Mozilla http://www.mozilla.org/
    or you could use Opera http://www.opera.com/
    they are both free, and you can disable pop-ups, and it works pretty well. I use StopZilla, and since 2/27/03 it has blocked 13128 pop-up ads.
