Just get the google toolbar.... from google! It works well, but I think it works only in Internet Explorer, which you prolly use.

Bleh~ their not gonna show up unless your on a webpage. If they are popping up, you have spyware. Get Ad-Aware and it should remove them.

I don't understand how people get pop-ups. I used to get them and I never though much of them. They all disappeared after I got DSL. Can't yuo jsut disconnect your DSL manually? START>Connect to>DSL>Disconnect button? Works for me. But I haven't had pop-ups for ages.

I havn't seen a popup in over a year. I protect my PC kinda well, but it's really simple to block popups. Firefox blocks popups automatically, MSIE, I'v got the google toolbar + PopUp Cop which work wonders too.

Google Toolbar is spyware waiting to happen.... =P

If you need IE, then use MyIE or Avant Browser. If it's spyware, I suggest you to get spybot. ^_^...
