    :eek: I just did an adaware scan..It showed two
    tracking cookies...I decided to investigate a little.
    It led me to a web site; www.popups.com. I hope you don't mind if i post this...I thought this to be very
    informative about how people who use pop-ups are trying to get by your pop-up blocker.........

    How Does The New Popup Code Work::
    Our new code works by detecting whether or not a surfer has popup blocking on. If detected, a layer ad is displayed that bypasses most popup blockers that users might have.

    Hi, Yeah, i know, it's almost like a battle to see who's going
    to come the winner in the end.....I wish some how, that someone would do something to, let you use your computer, without having to worry about all the junk that people try to
    sneak into it.
