Popup Blockers

by Barbara J. Feldman on January 27, 2004

If you are plagued with an overwhelming number of popups, the culprit is either a website you are visiting or software unwittingly installed on your machine. To remove ad serving software, try Ad-Aware. To block website popups as they occur, there are popup blockers built into the Google Toolbar and Alexa Toolbar. Both toolbars collect surfing data, so be sure to read their privacy policies for details.
