    Pop-up windows (IE)

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Is there any way to turn off the pop-up windows that appear when I'm working on the Internet? They are really a nuisance!

    Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

    Hi Kim

    There are many utilities that do that, one free one is the Google toolbar

    Re: Pop-up windows (IE)

    Since becoming a [url=http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/Mozilla[/url] convert, I've forgotten - quite literally - about pop-ups. The Firefox browser does such a fine job of managing them that you soon are breathing "clean air."

    That solution is not for everyone, though, and the recommendation for the Google toolbar is an excellent one. There are many programs around that will manage pop-ups and pop-unders for Internet Explorer, but I think the Googlebar is probably the best of them.

    I have finally been persuaded to give Firefox a go. I have heard so many good reports about it so I finally caved in (using it now).

    Try not to choke when you see the total number of pop-ups that it has blocked...the number can grow quite large!

    There are times when I have to work with plain vanilla IE. The thing I miss most about Firefox is the tabbed browsing.
