you have several options, some are free, some are trial, some work well, some don't. If you don't mind the additional toolbar, google has one with their google toolbar. Personally I have one called PopupBlock (one word) and it works sooooo well. Especially when I go to sights that.....eehhhhmmmm....well lets just say that it works when I go there.

Hi sdpuck


This will take the load off of your popup blocker and catch some that your popup blocker sometimes misses. it takes no resources its a runonce application

IE-SPYAD

sdpuck, I hear from many users that Google's search tool bar (which you can D/L free at their site) has a pop-up blocker built in and it does a great job.

I used to use the one mentioned by MicroBell... then i found another one called Pop Up manager or something like that... I can't remember which site I got it from... but i like it's a bit better... if i can remember the site... i'll post it here.
