Does it contain Spyware? What information can you provide about this proggie? What's the name of it, etc. There are many available and for free...but...???? Thanks for the thought however :) Ta and Good Hunting!

I just use Opera to browse the internet, which has it's own built-in pop-up killer.;)

It's called Advertiser Killer it's <= 1M
AFA Ad-aware says there's NO spyware. It's free.

If a popup does appear you can get the app to close it and place it in a blacklist so it doesn't open again. It say's it's for win 95 and 98 but I'm running it on win2k so it should work on NT and XP.

I chuck my vote in with LeatherMan - Opera all the way. I like it enough I'm probably going to actually buy it sometime this year :)

I downloaded this, unzipped it but I still get the popups. Is there anything else I was supposed to do to get it to work?

Will this work with Windows ME, too? Does anyone knows it?:rolleyes:

Yep ME is only a tweaked win 98 isn't it?

When a pop up appears, doubleclick AK and tell it to close the popup. When you return to that site you won't get the popup's
