    Popup Ad Filter is all you need.

    Ditto on Popup Killer - I even have to use it when visiting the HTF!

    I've got a pop up add filter, and lately it hasn't been working all that great.

    I suppose some sponser pay more to have ads that defeats those Popup remover programs we have... Like those VCRs that skip the commercials, some sponsers can pay extra to have ads that won't be skipped by those I think...

    PopUp Killer is a complete POS next to PopUp Stopper Pro from Panicware (http://www.panicware.com). The latter is better at suppressing real popups -- you never even see them -- while leaving things like Google search frames alone.

    Just disable scripting in your web browser internet options. No popups. None.

    Nah, just put HTF (and other regularly visited sites) in as a trusted site, and leave scripting off for all other sites.

    I use Mozilla as my browser. It has an option to ignore all pop-ups that are opened automatically by a site. Great Feature of a great browser.
