What an absolute disgrace that PCA have introduced these highly invasive & system slowing & corrupting advert pop ups. One of them just closed down my IE with an error report...nice one.

You ought to see how many cookies they throw at you

if you have a big issue over these,switch to Firefox.

Untick Javascript and install IETab for certain pages in Firefox and then add NoScript.

Or of course use the hosts file in VoG™'s link... or even both suggestions.

Hi all I have used the host file for about a month know with very little problems?

Do you VoG and Rapscallion have any problems with the Softpedia site well its knot a problem but some times the back arrow has to be clicked on twice?

Well thanks for the suggestions but I have absolutely no problems with any other website pop ups whatsoever so I'm not going to do anything apart from using the PCA site less & less.

I don't think I have ever come across such a bad case of the pop ups in years.

PCA sould show a tad more responsibility

In IE7 Tools > Pop up Blocker worked for me.
The Dell popups were a real pain before I set the Pop up Blocker

I use XP Pro with Service Pack 2 and popup blocker enabled. No Problems here.
