I use W7 Home and IE 9.0. In general, I have no problems with pop-ups, except of late I'm getting an increasing number of pop-ups along the bottom of the screen. I'm not sure if I am posting this on the right topic (hard to believe this is a W7 problem, an IE9 problem, or maybe it fits some other category). But, any ideas on how I can eliminate such annoying pop-ups? Note that the elongated rectangular pop-ups occur on a lot of the Yahoo sites. Also there is usually an X where I can close the pop-up. Again, the pop-up is a long rectangle along the bottom of my screen, maybe 1/3"- 1" high.
