Pop-Up Stoppers

  1jacks64 14:58 28 Sep 2003

The problem with pop-up stoppers you can download from the interent are that they cause some windows that you do want not to be displayed. I have noticed this when logging onto internet banking for example.
I say I want to log on and the screen where you enter your passwords does not appear but when I disable the pop-up stopper it does appear.

I have recently been having pop-ups titled Save! and Third Party Advertisement that seem to have got into my system memory and automatically appear whn viewing certain web pages. I have been to add/remove programs but do not seem to be able to find it. I can only think it must be on my system as some other name.

Any tips to solve this would be most gratefully received.

The first problem usually occurs when the popup stopper requires that you hold down a key (usually the Ctrl key) to let the popup appear. You should find more info on the required key press in the programme's preferences or in a "Readme" file downloaded when you downloaded the program, 1jacks64

For your second problem I suggest that you download update and run "Adaware" and "Spybot Search and Destroy" to suss out and delete any spyware that has been installed surreptitiously on your computer.

I have Google as my home page. You can download the Google toolbar which has Popup stopper on it. Mine has blocked 95 popups so far.

You have to have IE 5.5 and above though.

I use the Google toolbar with First Direct Internet Banking. You can switch it off to allow popups on certain sites.
