There are several freeware utilities made specifically for getting rid of those popups automatically (from the client side). The one I use is OnTrack!, which you can get from here: It has saved me many hours (subjective time) of cursing at irrelevant advertisement without once causing any problems with the other things people did with Java and JavaScript in their pages. -------------------------------------- Craig --------------------------------------
