If u want to stop the popups..get a google or msn toolbar..they are great..most popup blocker ads implant popups on to your computer until you buy thier product..or come with spyware.. Ad-aware6.0 is the only "spyware free" spyware killer i know of

Yeah, it happens to my computer, but only if I am using Internet explorer. Not if I'm using AOL Optimized though, its the pop up blocker.

NOO NOT EVEN AOL WILL STOP IT! DAMN IT DAMN IT DAMN IT I SAY. EVERYONE CHANT! DOWN WITH POP UPS. DOWN WITH POP UPS. DOWN WITH POP UPS. DOWN WITH POP UPS. DOWN WITH POP UPS. DOWN WITH POP UPS. Ok, I'm done for now.

Spybot: Search and Destroy is a good free spyware killer. I know it is the one i use.

even with spybot the adware and spyware can come back. get spywareblaster to put the scripts on your machine that prevent most from ever running, or coming back. prevents all, if you update often.
