    Hi jeanray,

    Getting a popup-blocker like the one from Panicware is one way, but there are several kinds of popups.
    Roughly three categories.

    Messenger spam: cure or block them with your firewall.

    Popups from sites you visit:
    PopUpStopper will work great, as will other programs like it.

    Popups caused by spyware installed on your computer:
    Spybot S&D or AdAware will be able to remove most of the culprits.

    HTH,

    Pieter
