I tried using google toolbar after seeing my dad use it (and so effective on HIS computer.)

Conclusion: it blocks every popup that I need and does not block popups that are most unnecessary, at least on my computer.

Why? Do I have an unknown trojan crawling somewhere in my CPU? What other popup blocker should I use? Any computer geniuses out there? Just anything to prevent odd popups from popping up three in a row while browsing Queenzone.com? (Unless Richard has seen to it :D)

Well, I enjoy it. But it stills let some pop-up appear. I haven't noticed any irregularity of the toolbar deleting 'necessary' pop ups. But it might be possible.


An interview? Oh, don't be ridiculous...

I've had pretty good luck with the Google bar. In fact I gave up any other programs to block pop-ups. You can allow pop-ups on a particular site by clicking the 'blocked' button when you're on the site. Also, you can allow individual pop-ups, like for opening a new window by holding down the shift key whilst clicking.

Unfortunately nothing is going to block them 100% of the time. Bastard spammers are coming up with new versions all the time which defeat blocking.

You shouldn't be getting them at all on Queenzone. I would imagine you might be victim to either a virus like you said, or perhaps the Microsoft vulnerability which allows pop-up messages to be sent to your computer. You can defeat that by following information from this site:

GRC is a great site. The guy creates programs absolutely free to help folks avoid problems. There are tests to see how visible your computer is to hackers and such.

I've been quite lucky with it so far.
