    There are numerous free ways to block popups. first of all, if you surf the net with internet explorer, download and install the google toolbar. It blocks most popups effectively and does not have any spyware. Another option is to use one of the nonmicrosoft browsers. many here use mozilla or the mozilla firefox browsers. these have the ability to be set to block popups and you can also configure them to delete cookies when you close the browser. Other good browsers include opera, avant and if you google browsers you will find there are many. If you run XP and want to chance it, download the SP2 update as it also has the ability to block popups in explorer...doc
