    When I am in netscape, I am constantly interrupted with ads that pop up behind the window in which I am working..sometimes covering that window. It slows my computer down and sometimes freezes it so I have to reboot. I have an I-mac. os 8.1. How do I get rid of these pesky ads?:mad:

    Whoops. That didn't work. Look in the Windows Forum under Operatings Systems. Checkout the thread re pop up ads. There are a number of suggestions re preventing pop ups.

    You can just turn your java off to stop the pop ups.
