I will look into that next time I am doing some utilities stuff. Fortunately (or not) I do not go to many sites anymore that have pop-ups. A year ago i went to a legitimate Taiwanese hardware manufacturer, a pop up appeared, when I clicked it it said "You have been phucked" It screwed my Active X up, I was able to do XP rollback to solve it, but now i am very, VERY paranoid about surfing to sites that i do not trust or pay for. Now there are keystroke logging programs out there that might be installed in some similar way. The LAST thng I want is for my brokerage account info to get to Russia or China....... I think most pop ups are soooo 2001 technology, like x10. Most ads with them I think piss off potential clients more than they are worth! A well designed website will not have anything important in tham now in general. At any rate, thanks for the accelerator idea.
