    I have not had a problem with pop ups, as I use FF and NS.
    A friend at the gym complained of them and I wonder what are the best programs? I think he is using IE, and I told him to go to Firefox.

    Do most of the pop up stoppers work with all browsers or just IE?
    I used one sometime ago on my old computer. I think it was either Pop Up Stopper or Pop Up Killer. I also think it only worked with IE.

    Thanks,
    Jerry

    I moved your thread to Privacy Software for better attention. ;)

    I use the excellent Ad Muncher that works with all the programs, and I can't live without it... :D

    What is your default browser?

    Admuncher works with all browsers. It truly is the best popup/ad remover. It's kind of redundant for me since I use Firefox with adblock but I used it for years with great satisfaction.

    Some comparisons:

    There are two kinds of popups:
    1. Normal annoying advertising
    2. Spyware

    Make sure there is no spyware first. Advertising can be eliminated by a good popup blocker.

    My main browser is Maxthon, but I'm testing the Firefox right now, and also have the Opera installed...

    Thanks for the replies and the link. The machine is new, and his wife's. He is using AOL as a freebie. He is really frustrated at the pop ups. I do not know if AOL is the source of most, and if a blocker will then prevent them.
