    Is there such a thing as a pop-under blocker? I use
    Google tool-bar and IEx settings which do a good job with pop-ups, but frequently on closing find ads.
     
  2. The job of a popup blocker generally includes blocking popunders too.

    Some pop-unders are Flash programs. For instance.
    No flash, no pop-under.

    If using Firefox, you can get an extension that not only speeds the browser up, but blocks Flash pop-whatevers. Fasterfox.
