Default Best Pop-up killer?

Can anyone tell me what the best ad-removal program is? You know, stop popups and kill spyware and the such. I hate pop-ups, they piss me off so much. They make me wanna throw my computer out the window. I have Ad-Aware, but it annoys me.

I've seen/used a number of them and for my money, nothing beats the Ad popup blocker included in Symantec Personal Firewall!

If you want a free one, download the google toolbar, it has a pop-up blocker incorporated.

If you want to try a 1 year free trial of anti-virus and firewall (with pop-up blocker) visit here http://www.my-etrust.com/microsoft/
It is $29 bucks per year after the first free 12 months is up.

http://toolbar.google.com

Nothing better.. one click enable the cookies - second click disable them - see the no of blocked popups - search the web through the toolbar.... and above all ITS FREE!!! What else do you need... its effective too... and believe me no bad incorporated codes...
