Anyone wanna stay here w/o ads & popups?

If you are running on IE, click your tools menu, then internet options and click the security tab. Click the "custom level" button and then scroll down to where it says "scripting" and look for the subheading that says "Active Scripting" and click either "disable" or "prompt" depending on what you want. If you click "prompt" it causes a prompt box to come up asking if you want to allow scripts to run every time you open or change to a new window. I have set mine to "prompt" so that I have the choice and can see what it does at various sites. Because the prompt comes up every time you open or change to new windows, it may become as annoying as popups to have to answer the prompt every time. But if you are just sticking with one site for a while, it's not so bad. So far, on this one, it not only stops the popups but completely filters out all the nasty ads. I may eventually just change the setting to "disable" and be done with it. I don't know what that will do to the overall internet experience, though, since some sites (shopping, for instance) may have scripting that's essential.
Just thought I'd give this a try!
