    I'm using IE8 on WinXP and when I go to a number of sites, I get a
    Netflix pop-up! I have Pop-up Blocker on, but get this pop-up a lot.
    I looked thru Pop-up Blocker Options, but do not see anything to block
    certain pop-ups - there is the option to allow pop-ups on certain
    sites, but I do not have Netflix listed in there.

    Any thoughts/suggestions on how to disable this pop-ups would be
    appreciated.

    I do that on a regular basis - I manually run Spybot, SpySweeper, and
    Malwarebytes and have NAV 2010 running in real time. I have a
    subscription to AdAware, but it gave me so many problems, that I
    uninstalled it.

    So far, they have not found anything!
