Stop looking at porn pages (joke) go to click here and download the google toolbar you can configure it to your requirments at any time but miost importantly it has a very effective pop up stopper which you can enable.

If you're on broadband the majority of users would recommend that you install a firewall: I use Kerio, which includes ad-filtering and pop-up filtering as well as having other privacy settings.

thank you for your help: my grandchildren use my computer and a lot of the pop-ups are not very nice for chilren to see and are sexually explicit as are some of the e-mails i am sent

Your isp internet software might include a facility for blocking access to adult content sites -- that probably won't stop the nasty ads and emails, but it could be useful when there's children using the PC.
