(In a subtle bit of irony, that page itself spawns a pop up).

Thanks for the information I thought there may have been some tweak from within IE, has anyone any better idea than a 3rd party program to get rid of these things?

great little program called Popup Stopper from panicware.com. Works great, wipes 'em out. Instructions included. Flinky.

No, there's nothing from within IE that can help.  Sorry.  

Good "answer", flinky.
yours truly_    very strange-should be no reason why ie6 itself would result in more popup ads. where did you install it from? what browser did you have before, and i assume, you had no problem then? anything else you added at the same time? do you by use aol to access internet? more info for a really peculiar situation.   regards, leonard

Ok Chaps thanks for the information, I am running ME and upgraded from the Microsoft site, I suppose it could just be the sites that I have been visiting.  Any way the consensus of opinion seems to be that I use an add on program, I therefore award the points to asyscokid being first of the mark.  Thanks for the help???.Graham
