I might only spend a hour a day on the computer now, I'm pretty much bored of it so I just do it this way and it works great.I might only see 2 pop ups.This Paris Hilton one keeps showing up for fuck sakes.
I use this (Safeguard Protect) to block popups. Its a great little program that doesn't add a toolbar or anything annoying like that to your IE. It resides under the 'Tools' option at the top. It'll tell you in the status bar if a popup was blocked, and your cursor will change showing that it blocked a popup. If you need the popup, just hold CTRL. Great program.
