How to stop pop-ups and ads.

  Thomo1 18:21 25 Mar 2005

Have my new computer. XP Pro SP 2.

Never had any pop ups with old system but now they appear on every page. Cant remember how i completley stopped them last time.

Internet privicy setting is set to high and pop up blocker box is checked.

other security software on system is: NIS2005, adaware,MS spyware,webroot spysweeper.

click here , it overlays IE and you will get no pop-ups. You could use Firefox but I find it triple dull.

no they are not messenger pop ups, i have those disabled.

They are the flashing ads that appear on web sites. I never had them on my old system on any site i just cant remeber how i did it.

Thanks for the link for the google tool bar, i will opt for that if all else fails.

problem solved.

i had to delve deep within my NIS2005 package and configure ad-blocking.

Thanks to all that helped.
