Default Whoa momma!!!

If you have not turned off the xp built in messenger system then it's a good chance that's where they're comming from. Popup blockers won't stop them as they come into the machine as a part of the network setup. Be it internet or a LAN.



Go here to get>>> shoot the messenger.

The Firefox pop-up blocker is pretty good but the pop-ups are getting smarter as well. Use the adblock extension, its great.
