the return of pop ups

  sunny staines 16:31 19 Jun 05

Has anyone else noticed recently that annoying pop ups have returned to web sites,google and 1e6 pop up blockers seem to have lost their effect.

Have the advertisers beat the pop up blockers.

got the usual antispyware loaded [spybot,adaware,a2,ms antispy & spyware blaster]

Just use Avant browser click here and you will be free of pop-ups. There is really nothing else to add as it has been discussed to death. There are very simple solutions but some choose to ignore them. It is far more annoying to pay subscriptions as some sites require.

Using FF and I ain't noticed a thing. As G says it's been discussed to death and I agree with him.

No popups here. Not even the one posters on this forum were complaining about last week.

I use IE6, Firefox and Opera browsers.

I have the Google toolbar pop up stopper and IE6 stopper.

I do not get pop ups.

I use slimbrowser mainly, with a built in pop up stopper and never have any problems. I would recommend the Google toolbar for its pop up stopper to anyone.

I use IE6 and Google toolbar pop up stopper - no pop ups for me.

I have Guard IE (the more modern version is GuardWall); mine does what it says on the tin and I can allow or disallow at the touch of the mouse:)

I think that this subject, with a bit of personal input, is now closed.

" Have the advertisers beat the pop up blockers. "


All it requires is the input of the operator.

Correct...but it does help if members occasionally click on adverts and pop-ups.
