    I'm a new user coming from KIS 7 and don't see any kind of pop-up blocker inclused in ESS. One feature of KIS I really loved was the pop-up blocker. I can set my IE blocker to medium, but some pop-ups still get through that KIS would always block. When I set it to high there are no pop-ups but it makes browsing more difficult because hotlinks don't open automatically. Is there a setting I am missing or can someone give me a recommendation?

    Thanks.

    thanks for the help guys

    I ended up switching to Firefox and using the adblock and no script extensions

    I can't believe how well they do. I never get any unwanted pop-ups and after adding a few adservers from my favorite sites each and every page is completely ad free


    I'm very happy with this combo now, much better than KIS IMO
