This is one pop-up that you should never click on..
It tries to fake as Xp popup so you will be cheated to click on it.

Open in new window


notice the small print "advertisement"
yes next time you see things like that
don't click.. cause it makes your comp worse.

I hate popups!!
If you hate it..
you can always download..
Windows Service Pack 2 (if you using original CD)

else download this from yahoo
http://toolbar.yahoo.com/
its very effective to block popups
it helps remove spyware on your comp also

the best way to prevent pop-ups is to restrain urself from browsing those nasty adult websites and installing nonsense application u get for free from the net cos u'll get spyware as well......
but then again, yahoo anti-spy can be ur way out from these problems, easy!! but not all spyware can be removed...some of them are very hard to deal with....

Might I suggest getting Mozilla Firefox to replace IE as your internet browser.

It has this really handy pop-up blocker that doesn't allow pop-ups to pop up unless you allow it.

It is also much more secure and safer than IE, which has a record of having a lot of loopholes that allow people to attack your computer.

yes i agreee using Mozilla Firefox to replace IE *headache, but for those who really get used to IE function can try yahoo tools (pop-up blocker n antispy tools) its free license n powerful. i should say its as powerful as winxp sp2 popup bolcker. Yahoo also provide services like updating your spytools for free. why not give it a try afterall its free n only took <3mb of your hardisk worth to try

There's really not much different between FireFox and IE in terms of controls and stuff.

Firefox you need to keyin the full address instead of their *correct me if i'm wrong.

Example:
IE: yahoo.com
Firefox: http://www.yahoo.com

No, you don't need to do that.
