Those pop-ups will either be HTML/JS ads - in which case you could use
one of many pop-up stoppers or a browser with a built in pop-up stopper
- or they'll be netsend ads - in which case a firewall should do the trick.

Either way, it won't cost a fortune.

I've not experienced many more than when I was on dialup- uses the
same technology so you're no more likely to I think

I can highly recommend Mozilla Firefox... free, quick and *so* much
better than IE.

if the popup is kind of system messenging (or somehow like system messenger service), it can be disabled at the Service of Administrative Tools in Control Panel.

I just downloaded this and find it very good, however I can't get my
download manager to work with it (GetRight). Apart from that it is very nice
indeed.
