Three days ago my pop up blocker had about 3500 pop ups blocked. Currently I have 16,402 blocked. What in the bejeezus is happening? It's not a problem for me(or is it) Anyone else have a big increase like this on theirs? Is it anything to be concerned about?

You must either have spyware or like xxx websites.... kazaa needs to be replaced with kazaa lite... and alot of other file shareing programs make due with spyware.. (instant free weather forcast crap etc) um.. or the great things that come up "you've got a virus you need to click me now" aka you're paranoid and stupid... click me to be bombarded with email and porn for the rest of your life.

...just kidding:) There are some pop ups that will NOT go away. you close-they reopen-forever. I heard:) they are on porn sites a lot and your pop-up blocker will just keep chugging away. I would think it would slow your computer waaay down fending off all that. If you notice the pop-up count rapidly climbing-log off to get away from it and do not go back to that site. If you are having that problem, you may also be getting slogged down with ad and spy wear. Go to freeware.com and download Spybot-search and destroy, and ad-aware v.6. Also download Winpatrol. These three do a hell of a good job of keeping your system safe. The Winpatrol is especially good because it notifies you of any unauthorized downloads such as changing your homepage and such. None of these do a thing about pop-ups however.

As a matter of fact, I've had it for several months and the counter shows only 322 blocked.

Get spybot S&D on the web. It's free and will remove and imunizie from future pop-ups.

...even scumbag virus/spam/spyware/adware ass-pirates even have a certain sense of decency. They figure if you've got a Mac, you already have enough problems:P. Sorry-had to-as a former-and VERY dissatisfied Mac owner.
