If you use Firefox, you can download a useful extension from click here which you can set up to block those annoying pop up
ads. After you install it and close / restart FF, in the lower right hand corner of your browser window (in FireFox) you should see the word Adblock. Single left click on this word, and it will bring up a list of all blockable scripts, images, etc etc.. You can use wildcards as part of the filter.
If you open the list again, you should see this script now in red, as it is blocked.
This thread was inspired by pop-ups from intellitxt that popped up adverts in German whenever I passed over 'computer' due to my visit to a german computer manufacturers website
