What is a good pop-up blocker?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey, my dads computer is suffering bad from pop ups. I got him AVG anti-virus, and removed 2 different types of worms. 6 DIfferent types of viruses, and I lost count after 20 on the trojan horses. Anyways, I got his computer working great, excpet hes still getting pop-ups. So i thought i'd ask you guys to see if you recommened any software to help with the pop-ups. So, any ideas?

thanks, josh

Usually browsers have them built in, for example firefox.

In fact i reccomend firefox, its the best browser out there IMO.

But also netscape and the aol browser all have built in blockers.

Now that you got the viruses out you need to get the spyware out. That's what usually makes all the popups anyway. So download, update, and scan with these three programs:

Microsoft antispyware
Spybot search and destroy
Ad-aware
