killing popup adds

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."

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..
