If you want another "highly recommended" try Proxomitron web proxy. It tames
the most recalcitrant sites in a way none of the other pop-up stoppers / ad
blockers can even begin to approach. And this one is totally free!
The author (Scott Lemon) just went on sabbatical - ie. closed his 
website (it displays a kanji script (a haiku?) which if translated with 
alta-vista etc basically says  "I'm outa here!"). The program is still
 available and has an active  yahoo support group. Scan back to about
June 1/2003 if you want to follow the controversy. My recommendation is that
after you get Proxomitron up and running, you then get the JD5000 filter set
to use with it. (Also available at  but JD has his own  Proxomitron
