    I'm using Windows xp home edition with sp2. My internet browser popups seem to be blasting me from every direction. Does anyone know how I can put a stop to this aggravating crap ? I done a search but didn't find anything on the subject. Thanks

    Click on Tools, Internet Options, select Privacy tab.
    Or Google Pop Up Blocker.

    By the way have you removed Microsofts Instant Messenger from your PC. It is a waste of space and pest that needs to be exterminated.

    Cliclk on start, select Set Program Acceas and Defualts, select Add/Remove Windows Components. Uncheck whatever you do not use or want. Number one pest Windows Messenger. I also removed MSN Explorer and Outlook Express. MSN has nothing to do with Internet Explorer.
