Default Google pop-up blocker

On advice from the guy I bought my new 17" TFT monitor off of last Friday, two days ago, I d/loaded this blocker, & to date it has blocked 29, most of them, if not all, that I got under the guise of my internet provider, I think that's d#@$ good going.

You know internet providers don't block anything in the way of viruses and pop-ups right?

The google tool bar is ok. I prefer non-toolbar blockers over it though.

I like to have one that comes with your INTERNET security program, I always favored Norton's till lately when I moved to Kaspersky, IL take another look at goggles, every free one Ive tried before was always never any good. POPUP BLOCKER was one an that was useless

I like google toolbar. It does a very good job of blocking pop ups, I have yet for anything to pass through it.

Yes, that's why I got the blocker, 29 ads gone in 28 hours [48 hours, less 2 nights offline asleep, is quite something I think.
