Yes - popups again!

  Newuser3068 13:07 12 Aug 2003

Hi team
I'm sure this question has been asked many times (but I can't find it in a search): how can I exclude specific popups? I installed a popup stopper from a cover disk some months ago but found it more trouble than it was worth. So I uninstalled it. I now find myself pestered by popups from the same 6 or so companies every day (any connection with the uninstallation?) and I'd like to try and exclude these specific poppers, rather than using a blanket popup stopper. Is there any such function available within IE 5.5? If not, any easily obtainable (cheap!) software that will help?
Thanks in advance.

Hi, visit the AnalogX web site and download POW. You can select the pop ups to keep or kill. It is a free download. Cheers, Bill

Google have a super "free" pop up stopper available for instant download as part of their toolbar.

I have been using it on 3 PC's for a few weeks and am well impressed.

There is a facility to allow specific Pop Ups on a "one off" or permanent basis if you wish.
