I have XP. I keep getting these damn internet explorer pop-ups. Is there anyway within XP to shut this crap off? Thanks, Mark

use any of the pop up toolbars, its stops a good handful. dont forget to run adware/spybot s&d to make sure you don't have adware hoarding your machine.

winXPsp2 has a built in as well.. but im holding off till they get the bugs off.

uh, sp2 is all bug fixes. Anything that isn't a bug fix is to correct design flaws (security/pop ups etc). Don't wait.

I've installed on 2 machines (gw notebook, hp desktop) flawlessly. Performance is better now on both machines.

That's a bit like throwing out the baby with the bathwater.

As a last resort format the hd effectively erasing everything and then re-install windows and any safe usefull software you have.
