hi anybody got any good solutions on how to get rid of pop ups,ive got stop-the-pop-up downloaded.But each time it kills one you get a window appearin and it can often bring you out of a game

close the browser when playing games

install google toolbar click here

try a firewall with a pop up stopper built in click here (free version)

if they are messenger service pop ups click here

or disable it manually in control panel/administrative tools/services

scroll down to messenger and double click it

set to disable from the list of start up types in the drop down box.

not sure

"page no longer available" if you click on a link means just that if you are browsing the web.

from within a game,did you click a help file etc?

what is the game?

Try slimbrowser, can be download from download.com it's based on ie so the adjustment is minimal and it's got a built in pop up blocker.
