AdBlock Plus is your friend.

Download Firefox and Ad Block Plus and you won't see any popup ads! Makes several websites less annoying.

By popup, you mean a small window opening with ad content?

I've used AdBlock but don't now (gotta see what everybody else sees, y'know). Air Forums operates no popups.

My mother has gotten into an annoying variety of "free" browser menu bars. WeatherBug was a particularly bad one. There was another (forget) which was even more difficult to remove. These may promote popups that they judge are of interest or related when you visit sites. This type of issue may not show itself if you run AdAware or Spybot.

Are you getting this on other websites? What is your platform & browser?

These problems are never fun to have.

As a Network/System's administrator for my company, I could list enough sites that could almost fill up a page! You wouldnt believe the stuff I have had to and still do sometimes clean up after my "fellow" employee's. Dealing with 29 FT people, and 80 PT in one office and half that in another, I stay rather busy during the day.

In the office, I do not allow for Mozilla or any other browser except IE, pretty much everyone is on 7. This is because I am the only IT person, and I need for everyone to have the same software for T/S reasons, and also licensing purposes. I run Trend SMB suite for AV/Malware, and the email scanner on my mail server, its a fantastic AV program.

At home I run IE7, Googles Chrome, and Mozilla between 2 machines. I also do not run any AV software or any other utilitys in that catagory. The reason is this: If I get something at home, i need to know how to clean it, and also find out what it effects, so that if the same thing gets into the office, I can be right on it faster. The other reason is simple. I dont browse the net at home often. IF I turn on the computer its to read certain sites and or pay bills.

I recently upgraded my desktop and reloaded the OS at home, this was the first time in 5 years I reloaded, and I never had a bug or anything of that nature, and my laptop is going on 3 years with out a reload.

I preach to my fellow employee's and yes I yell at my boss for clicking on things that they should not be, like banners, and sometimes popups, and the most notorius is the "Your PC might be Infected, Click here to scan your PC for FREE!" I have yet found away to get rid of some of those, they can be nasty critters, hiding as normal looking system process's or service that is just heck to find.
(My boss is the worst when it comes to clicking on things his friends send him, so I had to turn up his proxing to block a ton of stuff)

Anyhow if you need help you can PM me with your problem, and I might be able to help

And you think you're busy? I support 330 users and about 380 computers not counting associated peripherals. Most are at one site, but there are 5 outlying sites,the farthest being 40 miles away. I can't wait to retire!

I used to work in big companys like that, and I decided one day that I was to young to have ulcers, so I quit. I found this mid sized company that needed IT and I took it on, so far its been nice to not go home and drink a bottle of mylanta at night!

The last company I worked for before here was 2700 over 55 sites (construction company) with 2700 laptop/desktops scatter between montana the gulf coast, they only allowed for us to have 5 people for support, and the rest of us 5 ran the 200+ servers, then someone had the birght idea to swap us out every two weeks, network service went to support for 2 weeks, it was a failure, so I left. My hair was also thinning out!

You haven't lived until you support a tent full of computers used by a bunch of guys and gals with guns and the only thing you have is a laptop. Generator blaring on one side and AC unit on the other. The good thing about this type of situation is everyone looks out for you because you are the keeper of the link to the outside world.

Clarification...

Just a tongue in cheek suggestion for all of the thread contributors after 18 years working for Apple. Retired now... no longer have any skin in the game.
