I get popups like this about once a day. Would a firewall block them? Where are they coming from? Is it like a mass-IP mailer? Anyone else experiencing this?

AdAware shows nothing out of the ordinary. File and Printer sharing is Off. OS is Win2K Pro. I'm on ADSL through a hub,  not a router, and no firewall.

There  is a way to turn off popups in IE though it effects all popups. And a general pain in the butt.
Try and alternative browser such as Opera. Pop-ups can be toggled off and on with a 2/1 button push.
I believe Mozilla has a similar feature.
