    Default Pop-up Killers

    Can anybody suggest a DECENT pop-up killer? These pop-ups at the forums are doing my tree in.. seriously.

    I've tried one, but you have to teach it to kill each pop-up window, which is all well and good except the window changes every time...
    If you don't know who I am you were clearly of single digit age when I stopped posting on this forum.

    I'm old skool.

    ..and FF8 is clearly still the best.

    WebWasher can kill all popups, but it'll also nix the Private Message auto-notification.

    You know, I'm relatively new to EoFF, and I swear there were no pop ups the past few days. Today, THEY ARE KILLING ME! Were these things here before? Am I going insane?
    First-Aid Tip of the Week:

    If the Heimlich maneuver is ineffective on a choking victim, grab his or her neck and squeeze downward to force the food into the stomach. If this fails, grab the victim's ankles and swing him or her around in a circle to force the food up.

    They just started this morning (for me, at least).

    As to your sanity, if you still do retain it, you won't for long. That's the joy of EoFF.

    I use Panicware Popup Stopper. It works seeeeeexcellent. It stops every damn pop-up, no matter what. To have a link being opened in a new window, press the link while holding the Shift button. That's all.

    You can get it here: http://download.cnet.com/downloads/0...st-7-1.8328090

    Sometimes it's <b>so</b> powerful that it even stops IE loading up, because it thinks it's a popup. But that's very rare. It has two settings. One allows you to reduce the strength of the program (which still allows popups, unless there are a lot of them) or increase the strength, which causes every popup to close down.

    This is a gift from the Gods, no doubt. Is it compatible with Getright?

    The pop-ups here at EoFF have disappeared - hopefully for good. The best pop-up killer I can think of is the rather aptly titled "Pop Up Killer." Just search for it on Google. If you already have that one, and you're not having any luck with it - I wouldn't bother trying any others, as you're not going to find anything better.

    Well they appear to have stopped for me too, thank god. Those pop-ups were really beginning to stress me out.

    I didn't do anything, maybe GSN realised how annoying they were by a sharp increase in complaints. xD

    Apparently not, since they're back now.

    Yeah, but it's not as bad as it used to be.
