What is the best anti-pop up software around? im using XP, i've used Zerods before but is slows down my broadband conection to the point where its slower than dialup. Any recomendations?

Proxomitron is free and highly efficient - it can be found in the downloads or on Disk 2 of PCA's August 2003 issue. It also curtails website pages' advertisements from appearing.

But make sure, if you use it, to follow the instructions implicitly; there may be occasional cases where filling in website form fields is not always possible, so use the Bypass facility temporarily.

I haven't used it yet but apparently Google's latest toolbar can block popups.

Am using Googale's toolbar brilliant! Hav'nt had 1 pop up from any site i'v blocked and does not slow connection. Well worth installing

Agree, I am also using Google toolbar,and so far it says 21 blocked. Haven't seen a pop up for ages.

I used to use 'FreeSurfer', never had a problem with it.
My firewall looks after them now.

Stilll can't match Proxomitron...:-)

My son is an IT support specialist and that's what he would recommend no matter what anyone else suggested.

I've been using Naviscope for 2 years now, I've never seen any pop ups all this time. Excellent!

Try using Opera instead of IE6. No pop ups!
