Default Annoying setup requests while browsing

Is there a plugin or smething wich stops the annoying setup requests wich appear on most porn and crack websites?

Thanks

not really, their sites are embedded with these plugin set-ups because they want their spyware installed on your comp. do what i do and avoid them.

Most modern popup blockers will take care of this. I use Google Toolbar, and I very seldom get those install requests... except in more legitimate situations such as when I don't have Macromedia apps installed, or have older versions.
