I use pop up stopper, and I never get any popups. Do a search on Google to find it, it's free.

Using Firefox or Opera as your browser will eliminate almost all pop-ups; both are usually faster and have more modern features than IE.

If you do decide to use Firefox (highly recommended for everything except Windows Updates and other sites that require Active X), I would recommend you also download and install the Firefox extention named "ADBLOCK".

The Google Toolbar (for IE) has an excellent popup blocker built into it and so does Yahoo's Toolbar. (Be aware Google does collect information from your computer if you use certain of their toolbar's features (which you do not have to use or allow) like PageRank and Desktop Search (info which Google claims remains anonymous) and I don't know about Yahoo's, but I do use them both.

I also enjoy the extension, "Nuke Anything." It allows you to remove irritating things from a page before you print, and on some sites it's really handy for killing an ad that's right in front of what you're trying to read.

These days, there are so many extensions that it's nearly impossible to sort through them all.

Lately Firefox has updated versions so often that the extensions have a hard time keeping up!

I just updated to 1.5.0.2, highly recommended because of several exploits existing, and now find Roboform isn't yet supported on this version. I'm sure it will catch up soon.
