Pesky roll over popups


How do you turn those pesky little popups, the ones that are double underlined and when your pointer icon runs across it a popup appears, off? They are a pain in the butt!

Try Firefox?


You could switch to Firefox and try out an ad blocking add-on. I use the Noscript add-on for security, but that is probably overkill for ad blocking.

Sure works though- I can use sites with so many ads it scares off most users (like tomshardware.com).

Hi TheLT.

Use a hosts file to block the rest of the ads and other unwanted websites here, Block Unwanted Parasites and Advertisements with a Hosts File.
