    Default pop-up windows help


    Can anyone suggest free shareware to prevent pop up windows? I would
    like one that someone has used before and that hasn't interfered with
    email. The windows are driving me nuts!

    I have this:

    http://www.panicware.com/

    (I sent an email from the site to you, Terri, and to the group, but
    I don't know if it will go through; it should have more info).

    It has been great, I have no popups now. I do have to deactivate it
    to access my Yahoo mail address book and some popups on websites
    that are valid windows--like when you are looking at Lands End
    catalog and want to see a fabric swatch. The popup software
    will "kill" that window, but if you deactivate it first, you can see
    the popup.

    It's been easy to use and it's free. I can't remember if someone
    gave me the site or if I found it with a search--it might have been
    via an MSN article. I know I read some articles about annoying
    popups there that were helpful.

    There were these popups that were like Instant Messages and I had to
    change a setting on my computer to deactivate those; sorry but I
    can't remember how I did it. Maybe someone else can help with those.

    I've been using panicware.com for almost a year now and have had no problems
    and it seems to work wonderfully. You have to search around the site a bit
    to find the free version but it is there and works beautifully.

    Good luck.
