Popups every where. I have a popup blocker, spam guard and anti virus all working yet they come. I swear they were designed just to drive us nuts. I mean how many of those popups do people really ever click on at least on purpose? Do you think that they are worth the advertising? Heck I had one the other day that was of a woman with hardly anything on and my daughter was standing beside me and gasped mom what are you looking at? I had to laugh just because it shocked me as much as it did her. I just really hate popups Do they drive you nuts?

Some time ago they really gave me hell of a time and were really annoying popping up at a rapid speed i open one explorer and there it go 2-3 pop-ups with it , but now as i am using firefox the pop-ups not just only reduced but in a way closed down for good once and for all.

I doesn't drive me nuts. Actually, some pop-ups were made for the sake of gaining online cash money. They earn much if they use pop-ups. Anyway, other popup blocker isn't effective.

Oh my goodness. They make me want to bite nails! Like you, I have more defenses on here than the military has for our country and I still get them. The 'pop unders' are what I am mostly getting now. Oh, and how about that one where you leave the page and it turns into a dialoge box 'Jenny says' or something. Then you previous page is gone for good and you have to open a new window! Yeah, I've lost my religion a few times.

sounds more like a virus if you have pop up blockers and odd random sites such as that popping up. I use Firefox instead of Internet Explorer because of such things

along with some of the other users, I use firefox as well. since then I have not had any problems with pop-ups and will never use IE again.. I would also suggest trying adaware (its free) to clean your system of any spyware that typically causes pop-ups.

I have mozilla fire fox as my web browser and i have never noticed any popup since i am using fire fox yeah they are to make you angry and frustrated and i think it is not a good marketing techniques as ever one think of pop up as negative so i think this should be ended and never used in good web pages/sites.
