    Guys,

    Is it ok to run two (or more) pop up blockers at the same time? I know that users running Windows XP SP-2 get a firewall and pop-up blocker option turned on by default. I run XP SP-1. with IE 6 and Norton Internet Security. While I know it is not good to have two Anti-Virus programs on your computer or two firewalls operating at the same time, can you have two pop-up blockers so that one may catch what the other misses?

    Jack

    Likewise, I am running Mozilla 7.3 p-u-b and the SP2 concurrently with no apparent problems.
