    Does anyone know, by chance, if Zero Popup Killer (not the toolbar version) has any malware/trojans in it ?

    I've used it in the past, and haven't had any problems with it, but anytime I would run spybot or adware it would wipe it out.

    Any ideas ?


    Thanks All,
    Jewelie ;)

    If both AdAware and SpyBot take it out then I would say that it is indeed some kind of malware and should be avoided. There are many free popup blockers that truly do not have spyware in them - you should try one of those.

    Jewelie, try the Google Tool Bar. It has an excellent pop up killer. Both the Tool Bar and pop up killer are free. Over the years I have used several different pop up killers. The one Google offers in their Tool Bar is as good, perhaps better, than any that I have used. Give it a shot.
