Can I block a Popup?

I was looking at watches a week or so ago on the Web and now every time I open a Web Page a Popup advertising watches comes up. I use Outlook Express if that is any help.

You can, this tells you how to turn it on/off link text and this tells you how to configure it link text

You could also delete all the current cookies which may help you.

If you use Firefox as a browser you can install addons Adblock plus - which is very effective. Also NoScript will stop scripts running automatically (you can allow pages/sites temporarily or permanently) so creating white lists. The is also FlashBlock which does a simpilar thing for Flash content (may be similar for IE, Chrome, Opera etc )

Note - Using these add-ons may seriously diminish your browsing experience -
