How do the popup adds work? How to kill them before they come up? The program shouldn't take too much time to write, right?

Good link. Below is some comments from the link. I cannot find 'VARIANT_TRUE', and I don't see a 'VARIANT_TRUE' that comes with 'OnNewWindow2'?

"I think there's a more efficient way to kill popup windows: hook into the OnNewWindow2 event and set Cancel to VARIANT_TRUE."

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

That was the entire statement made as a comment on the pop-killer program.

How do I go about doing what's said in the statement? I cannot find 'VARIANT_TRUE' on Visual Studio help file..
