every time I access the internet (IE6) I get a pop-up window on some silly web camera. (the address of the window is http://ads.x10.com/yahoo/jackie.html)

How can I cancel this idiotic pop-up window which comes up every single time.

nothing serious, just a minor annoyance, but I might learn something that would help me avoid similar things in the future....

I don't know why I didn't just search for the cookie or html document in the first place. I did so and wiped it from the face of the earth (well, I guess just from my computer....) It's pretty insidious now...I mean, the darn thing installs itself on my machine and it's not just a text file; it's a 3kb text file PLUS six or seven gif's and a flash movie...!

thanks Eddie...

I also use POW and think its very handy at killing those annoying pop-ups.
And like Toby said, you get to choose which ones you want to get rid of.
