You can also invest in something like norton internet
security package (or other like packages) that come with
antivirus/firewall/popup blocker .
Norton does that take a heavier usage on system resources
then other programs but....

I use Hitware Popup Killer lite available from rightutilities.com
It seems to do a good job for free.

Hello
I find that downloading a good spyware remover and running on a regular
basis(1 or 2 times a week) results in no need for a blocker. Some people
might disagree so you can try it either way.

Hi Wendy,

Wait for Service Pack 2 to come out (shouldn't be too much longer). Until
then, try the spyware-free google toolbar:

Totally, the latest Norton Internet Security
(http://www.symantec.com/sabu/nis/nis_pe/) product seems to work pretty good
but on one of my slower machines, the resulting lag of speed is unbearable.
Still, in this day and age you really should be running a firewall and an
antivirus solution at least. I have a hardware router/firewall personally.
I run Mcafee (http://www.mcafee.com/) on my workstation at work and it seems
okay with minimal slowdown on the system. My friend is running N.I.S. on
his machine and he loves it but the ad blocking can remove certain items
from the page and you can't get them back. As others have suggested, I have
used the Google tool bar (http://toolbar.google.com/) for regular popups and
now I am using Super Ad Blocker (http://www.superadblocker.com/) for the
flying ads and ad banners that so many pages have now. Just my $.02
