I use AOL 8.0 and there are so many annoying grey faced popups anyone know how i can stop these? I have set up AOL to stop popups but this has no effect.

If you are on AOL via a dial up then minimize AOL and surf via Internet Explorer/Firefox/MyIE2 or what ever browser floats your boat.

If you are on AOL via ADSL via a modem then just dont install the AOL software and use the browser and email client of your choice.

If you are on AOL via a router it makes no difference if you have AOL on or not as the router logs on to the service when it powers up so just use what browser you like.

You can use any popup stopper you like then.
