    Why not just block them in the windows/system32/drivers/ect/hosts file? much easier, and no system resources are used at all.

    that file is two edged sword pal...not configured properly it can make ur life hell.
    in anycase lot of ad-blockers use that file only but then those doesn't have any "ID 10 T" errors ;)

    I stick with a monthly AdAware6 scan. that usually gets rid of any popups. Popup stopper stops too many things that i want to open from opening, stuff thats opened from Quick Launch toolbar.

    But then again, anyone desperate enough to go through nonstop searches for internet porn can surely handle a few popups now and then. :no: <== is this guy flipping us off or saying "NO"?

    actually I find with popup stopper that running adaware is almost redundant - the stopper seems to block cookies as well....

    I tried POW! and popup stopper and Hosts and i still was getting that crap.
    I didnt install google, as I hate more toolbars getting in the way.
    Mozilla is my choice now.
