It took me two tries, but I have FINALLY rid myself of pop up ads WITHOUT having to use pop up stopper (Which never really worked that well at all)
FIRST I went here:
http://www.lavasoft.com
and downloaded Ad-Aware which can remove most spyware from your registry, memory, and hard drive.
THEN I went here:
http://www.smartin-designs.com/
And downloaded a hosts file which would confuse all the spyware on my system into contacting FAKE IP addresses, instead of their mothership hosts to provide them with new pop-up data.
THEN I went here:
http://cexx.org/dummies.htm
(A site which HAS been posted here before)
and downloaded a dummy DLL to fake out Kazaa. It works even with the NEWEST Kazaa 1.61
So far I have been pop up free!

I just use Ad-Aware and Pop-Up Killer.

I tried Ad-Subtract Pro, but that did a bad job distinguishing between the good pop-ups and the bad ones.

You could also just use Mozilla. The latest builds (both RC1 and RC2) have the ability to disable unrequested javascript popup windows. In otherwords, no more pop-ups!

Not to mention the fact that the browser is rock solid and fast. Certainly not the Netscape we all used to know and love.

Try using Mozilla with any sites that are Java Heavy, IE Yahoo Games, it doesn't work. And if its anywhere NEAR as slow as Netscape 6, count me out FAST.

Not too long ago I switched to Kaaza Lite which killed off my biggest source of popups and adaware does a good job of getting rid of the rest.
