do you know a good NEWBIE friendly popup blocker i can install? thanks
Are you using Firefox, or IE?
I use just Firefox with Adblock and I get no pop-ups at all.
Internet Explorer 6 SP2 has a popup blocker as well.
You can find many here:
Before SP2 and when I used IE, this was the easiest and best I could find on the net: http://www.bayden.com/popper
4 button control, how easy is that?
hi, it's not for me, but a friend, it's for IE - his daughters won't use firefox and it's a windows 2000. i'll have alook at your links, thank you.
Probably Google Toolbar suits their needs.
Used this one in the 'old days' Ice and it was excellent!
Since they are using Win2000 and are satisfied keeping IE....another choice would be Microsoft's MSN Search Toolbar with tab browsing.
I concur. I never had a popup since I'm using Firefox + Adblock and Firefox does alot more than that.
I consider popup blockers as useless as cookie blockers.
A friend of mine grounded his daughter for a week because she used IE instead of Firefox, after he told her never to use IE. He was sick of always cleaning crap from the system and laid down the rules. NO MORE IE!
Rock on dad!
IF you used IE in the old days, you would think twice about that statement
I'm using IE since (well almost) day 1. I use adaware,spybot,MSAS,ewido on daily basis and the come clean. I cant kick it out coz other browsers wont display my language the way it should look and spell.
I concur on that too
I'm just writing my opinion, who cares about my opinion anyway, in the end users do what they want.
At least you have a GOOD REASON to use MSIE.
Thanks for mentioning it, I will remember that one.
For a newbie, nothing like Google Toolbar.
