Update your HOST FILE and you'll stop all the ads on most websites.
Popups will show up as Action Canceled Server not found.

How do you do that?

Darn it's to long to post here the software said no dice. You'll have to download the zip file and unzip it. then search your harddrive for a file called hosts.

If you have windows Xp its in this folder,
C:WINDOWSsystem32driversetc

Make a copy of the original first.
Open the host file with notepad, do a select all and tap backspace. to remove everything and copy and paste the new one you just unzipped. and click file and save.

Now if you hit a site and a pop-up or add shows up just right click the ad and click properties highlight the url and add it to the host file. Thats what I did to stop the pop-ups here at your site. I just looked for the urls but couldn't find them.  One said 8 something , the other one was spam-rest. I added them and no more pop-ups.

If they do manage to pop-up because the ad companies change all the time. it will say action canceled, where the 460 x 80 add under the top center navigation menu.
I don't see no ad, it just says Action Canceled.  Sorry

I know sites rely on the ad's, but they waste bandwidth. Even though I'm on 3.5 Mb connection they just bug me and they bite...LOL

To block popups very easily on internet explorer go to http://toolbar.google.com/ and download Google's pop up blocker.  Its free, simple and it works.
