I take it you are on XP - is it SP2?

Try the google toolbar - it has a built in blocker.




Maybe also try Firefox browser.

That would suggest that IE6 should have it's popup blocker working.

Try clearing out all temp files - crapcleaner is a good option.

What option list? to add the toolbar roght click the IE toolbar and tick the yahoo option that should get it up.
