    Question Please help on Popups

    Popups these days are too irritating. One popup is leading to many....
    My problem is

    When a page cannot be displayed in IE (iam using IE6) it will show 404 error.. but this page was replaced with some bad webpage. When i try to close that page it is giving some 10 popups. I tried by removing temp internet folders and cookies.

    Please suggest me how to handle this situation

    Disable active scripting in IE, then go get mozilla --> www.mozilla.org and disable them for good.

    you can use a popup blocker there are plenty out there sharewares and freeware just google it or you can install a program like zone alarm that besides help you with the popups is a firewall software. and if you are trying to clean cookies and things like that you can try Ad-aware from lavasoft www.lavasoft.com i think.

    I use "Stop-The-Pop" and it's excellent. Since I've had it I have not gotten one pop-up.

    Here's the link Stop-The-Pop .

    Just my personal opinion here, but switching from IE to Mozilla is like switching from a Chevette to a Corvette. I'll NEVER go back to IE.
    It isn't paranoia when you KNOW they're out to get you...
