Pop up

The pop up "you are the 999,999th visitor: congratulations....etc.etc." seems to be appearing with increased regularity on an increasing number of sites. Is there any way I can prevent this from appearing? The IE pop up blocker doesn't seem to have any effect.

You could try this, it works for me.

Is it actually a pop up or just a banner at the top of the site

Give us an example of a site you get it on

It does "look" more like a banner, than a pop up. It seems to be on those sites which have an advertising banner at the top of the home page. I have seen it on a variety of sites, and it is not there every time.

Difficult to remember as it usually is sites resulting from a Google search, and I tend not to notice the names of the site. I suppose I should take more notice really!
