What is the best pop up blocker available for free? I had the one that Cox provides, but half the time it allows bad pop-ups and denies the second window when I click on a link. I am really frustrated by all the popups, and afraid of what they may be dropping on my unsuspecting and newly pristine system!

Hi irish_eyes,

Welcome to Geeks To Go.

I use the one that IE 6 has in Service Pack 2. I have it set to high. Works for me

I have heard a lot of terrible things about SP2 - from hanging pages to repeated system crashes. Have you had any problems with it?

Nope, never had a problem. I keep everything up to date with my security and software.

The Google toolbar pop up blocker is effective, too.

There is no reason to NOT install SP2 on a clean system, and about a dozen reasons why you should, mostly security issues.
