    Take a look through the <!post=Unsolicited Webpopups - the new Spam?,187520 >Unsolicited Webpopups - the new Spam?<!/post> thread, to see if it strikes a chord.

    I use a pop manager that works very well with IE 6 SP-1and is free, there website is: http://www.endpopups.com/index.cgi. It appears that you have some spyware installed in your computer. You might want to try the Adaware site Forum: www.adawareusa.com., there spyware software is out of date but I found their moderators on their Forum site to be very helpful.

    Thanks a bunch all! No more pop up windows and I even have my IE 6.0 behaving with the popup manager! What a great program and my computer has not spit a message out on my screen since I went in and shut off the messaging!
