turn off java in your browser. All though this will stop most of the spam it won't stop all of it. And when your on the internet and you need it stuff won't work.

You probably have some spyware running in the background. Before you dismiss this idea, download a trial of Lavasoft's Adaware and run it, you'll be stunned at all the crap running that you were unaware of.

Hi,
You an also download and install a pop up preventer, such as Pop Up Stopper. The one problem with this is that it stops all pop ups, even forms you may need to use while on the internet or attached to email. Pop Up Stooper can be disabled to allow you to access desired pop ups.

I hope this helps.
