i would also add that it depends on the web browser your using too....some of the new browsers have pop-up blockers built into them.

the new MSN, and FIREFOX....have them built in.
and they are pretty good at it.

you can get firefox :here

this browser can load pages very fast too....

I use MSN toolbar for my work and Yahoo! toolbar at home. I like them both very much.

Plus they are free!

XP Sp2 has a pop-up blocker built into Internet Explorer. It's actually really good

Very true...after I updated my mom's computer with SP2, I was hearing nosies like a pop-up blocker, but I haven't installed the MSN, Yahoo! toolbar.

I thought that was very cool. And a little title bar pops up to tell you that a pop-up window was blocked.
