Auto-launch of IE windows

By cannond5 ·
Is there a way to disable the ability of some websites to launch another window when you attempt to close one? It's really ticking me off. Thanks

These site are mainly advertisment, you need a external software to get it close.

For example:

The "pop-up" window thing is caused by javascript in those websites.

You could disable the javascript in in the options of your browser, the down side is that some sites which use javascript for 'good purposes' won't work correctly unless you re-enable Javascript(see 'Disable pop ups' link below).

Otherwise you'll need a pop-up window killer software.

Here are some links from techtv.com that will help:
