        Popup Stopper has definitely got a better interface than POW!, I used POW! for over a year, now that I have been using Popup Stopper Pro for a few weeks after a recommendation from a friend I am sold. It is an intergration with IE, so rather than a constantly running sys tray app, you open the prog when you open IE. Also, simply click the X to stop, unclick to allow or hold control to allow a popup. No right-click and Add/Delete like with POW!

            i tried popup stopper for about 2 weeks but at times, it blocked me from opening new IE windows (ie from the shortcut in the taskbar)

              I know it's a year on now ;) but they fixed that bug Andy, (and anyone else reading this) and you just press the shift key when you click on the task bar and you get a new IE window.

                In all honesty I don't use any ad-stop technology. My trusty mouse can bat them down in nothing flat.

                If I were to get 1 though, I think I'd have to give the new Google Toolbar a test drive.
                http://toolbar.google.com/

                If it's half as good as the search engine, it must be a pretty decent tool.

                Anyone here given that rascal a whirl yet:?:

                I don't think I ever get online anymore without searching with Google at some point. Man, if they ever go down I'm toast:laugh:

                  Mr. C is 100% correct!

                  Pow was king for a LONG time, but now Google has the crown. The Google Toolbar 2.0 Blocks everything by default until you get to a site that you need the pop up, just reach up and one click allows popups for that entire site, permanently, until you change your mind.

                  Unlike Pow, it needs NO maintenence.

                    prefer Mozilla and Firebird myself, both have built in popup blockers that are very effective and customizable

                        Why not just block them in the windows/system32/drivers/ect/hosts file? much easier, and no system resources are used at all.

                            I stick with a monthly AdAware6 scan. that usually gets rid of any popups. Popup stopper stops too many things that i want to open from opening, stuff thats opened from Quick Launch toolbar.

                            But then again, anyone desperate enough to go through nonstop searches for internet porn can surely handle a few popups now and then. :no: <== is this guy flipping us off or saying "NO"?

                              actually I find with popup stopper that running adaware is almost redundant - the stopper seems to block cookies as well....
