All the threes WHY?

  Legolas 19:26 19 Mar 2003

I have Pop-Up-Stopper running set in aggressive mode why does it not block these rather annoying three,s, and has anyone discovered how to block them.

I've never seen these 3's of any kind!

I use EMS Free Surfer mk II and Norton Personal Firewall's ad blocker.

Haven't seen an ad or pop up on a site since Norton Firewall. Sorry.

Also have Popup Stopper by Panicware, never saw "threes" before, of course I also run Adaware, Spybot and Spywareblaster, maybe they have something to do with my three free browsing.

I only see them on average twice a visit. Now I know some people will disagree with me, but I quite like them, they nicely morph from one colour to another, usually sit and watch them for a couple of minutes,then Zap em! J. :o)

but actually i don't mind them on the main page easier to ignore than a pop up since i can log on etc with them on one corner of the page. its when they appear on the main page and blocks the threads when it gets annoying.looks like its a part of the page rather than a pop up which could be why your pop up stopper isn't blocking them.

the more we use software to kill ads the more innovative ads get to circumvent those software :)
