Does anyone know if the Google Toolbar Popup Blocker counter can be reset back to 0? I checked the Options but can only see "Hide popup blocker count" My counter is getting quite high.

There is a Kill pop up count entry in the reg but i dont know if changeing this will set it back to 0,i know it shows number of popups blocked.

If you put a tick in "hide count" it changes the display to "blocking popups" with no number count.

 ÑÌÇKÑÂMË where is it. Just done a search of my registry and nowhere to be seen?

The easiest option is to go for Brazils post and hide the count.

As for  ÑÌÇKÑÂMË way of thinking:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\NavClient\1.1\Options

Look for: KillPopupCount

Double click, Change the "Base" to "Decimal" and you should see a number appear which should fit the number of popups blocked.

Change the number under "Value Data" to 0

Exit regedit.

Although it is the simplest of changes, backup that key just in case.

Thanks Powerless worked a charm. I don't want to hide the number but set it back to zero because it is getting very high now. It is now back to zero.

Thanks again. Problem solved.

I hope you don't mind me resurrecting this thread, but I have just installed the Google Toolbar and found this in the FAQs - nice and simple. May be of use to other Google Toolbar users.

7. Can I reset the pop-up blocker's count?

Yes. You can reset the pop-up blocker's count by holding down ALT + Shift and clicking on the pop-up blocker button

Just checked Zak's post works perfectly :-)

Well there you go.

Moral of this post read the info when installing anything, I'm as bad as most and don't so well done to Zak for doing what we should have all done.
