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?

This link will help you....

Features
Remove popup windows by URL, title or window size.
Clear internet URL history, typed URL, temporary internet files, internet cookies, autocomplete forms history, autocomplete passwords history, Internet Explorer favorites, temp files, run history, document history, last logon user, find files history, find computer history, network connection history and telnet history.
Let IE window always show tool bar, menu bar, address bar, status bar and always resizable.
Hide IE windows by hotkey.
Remove status bar modifiers, context menu disablers, "onunload" command, Flash, and timer. (not 100% worked)

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..
