Hi,

I'm trying to compile a list of popup sites to block.

Is there a site that offers a list popup domains to block?

In the past I've found lists that contain popup sites and other ad sites, however, I'm ONLY looking for popup sites. :)

Thanks!

This free software adds something like 8000 know ad/malware sites to the restricted zone in Internet Explorer via a registry entry:

Hope this helps.

Also it has a new HOSTS file you can use.

Lot's of sites have their own pop up's... and don't use 3rd parties. To me this sounds like an uphill battle, like with Spam. White-list's rather than black-list's work better in this situations. FireFox, Opera and many others have some great tools to help prevent pop-up's as well. M$'s active-X is how most spyware is installed, but javascript remains one of the most popular pop-up creators.

Again, there are lot's of pop-up's that have a legitimate purpose, and aren't always served from the host site, Akamai and other such content providers/cacher's, are a good example.

I too would agree that it would be a better solution to use a popup blocker/security/software rather that attempting to stop the popup sites by other means (e.g. manual methods such as Hosts files / adding restricted sites / etc - the list of potential sites which you need to block would be impossible to be complete and to keep updated).

Good luck.
