    Running IE 7 on Windows XP if that makes a difference.

    I have "Turn on pop-up blocker" checked but still occassionaly get
    pop-ups such as at http://www.liveatc.net/

    After page fully loads I get a pop-ups for "Three thing should never
    say to -----------"

    Any suggestions on how to REALLY block pop-ups without adding more
    complicated progs with a bunch of setting??

    TIA

    1- No pop-up blocker is 100% accurate.
    2- A pop-up blocker usually won't (can't) block pop-ups from adware.

    That isn't a popup. It is a CSS frame within the page. There is no
    separate popup to block. It is code within that web page that display
    content that YOU interpret as a popup. If you don't want to see that, you
    could always disable scripting in IE but then you'll find content missing or
    features lost at lots of sites that you do want. If a site has valid
    content that requires scripting, they should test for the lack of it and
    display alternate content telling you to enable their scripting. You'll
    notice if scripting is disabled that this site never bitches that you don't
    see their pseudo-popup.

    Bitch to the site owner about their intrusive and rude crap that gets in
    your way of *using* their site.

    You can prevent the popup on that site:
    http://www.liveatc.net/

    By disabling Active Scripting in the Internet Zone, or

    You can place:
    http://www.liveatc.net/

    In the Restricted sites Zone.

    Good luck,

    Donald Anadell
