    I've been using the one made by Panicware it's pretty good but lately some pop-ups have been getting through. Are there any better ones?

    Thanks

    Another vote for Firefox. Best browser I have ever used.
    As a side note, I think out of spite, my wife continues to use IE. Utilizing the pop-up blocker built into XP SP2 and the Google toolbar we get ZERO pop-ups.

    YMMV

    Try the Yahoo toolbar.It blocks pop ups and has a very good anti spyware scanner with it.
