Can anyone give me a free program to stop popups. I use to have popup-destroyer but for some reason it disappeared from my programs. Thanks.

I don't have popups.

But I use Firefox and Mozilla.

Also, I used Spybot, Adaware, Cwshredder and Housecall. No parasites allowed!

Instead of adding more utilities, have you tried another browser such as FireFox? I use it, downloaded a free "hosts" file, added a few permissions to one of the browser settings for trusted sites and I get no popups and much cleaner scans from spybot and Ad-aware. If you are using IE and just have to, there should be some relief coming. Firefox and Mozilla are free, work great for me and popups have disappeared without 3rd party blockers of unknown integrity. Hope this helps.
