Wow, the google tool bar really works!

Google tool bar vs JS.Trojan.WindowBomb

It seemed to fair very well. I never got above 390 instances of Outlook. Could be because of my ram. Sucker killed a shiot load of pop ups and it did it very quickly. Though my system remained quite stable through it all I got bored of this stress test and shut it down.

Hmmm
let me clarify. If i hadn't been running the google toolbar, the trojan would have crashed my machine. 300k email pop ups will do that too ya.

yeah its awsome, i always wanted a popup blocker that integrates with IE and has a key to disable temporarily. i could find ones that do one or the other, but not both until the google toolbar.

Alll.....ternatively you could use another browser/mail client that doesn't still have loads of unpatched security holes (I was going to link to a page that listed loads of them, but it has been taken down), and maybe doesn't open these popup windows in the first place?

It functions quite well, i used to use pop ups on my site but in light of all the new ways people can get you to look at ads im redesigning it to work without them.

thats very true. Only a few pop ups still work.
Java pop ups and flash pop ups that cover your page...however they don't truely have their own window.

I haven't seen a real pop up in a while.

if I were to use this toolbar, will it kill ALL pop ups? Even ones I might need?

yes, even the ones you need. Like if a PM message window pops up. This is why you turn it off right before the window comes up.

Oh no, you didn't install MSN Messenger Plus 2, did you?

My brother accidentally installed it with the Sponsored crap enabled, and it took me an hour with manual registry editing to get the ads off! (The latest Spybot S&D updates can't get rid of it!)

The trick is to install MSN Messenger Plus 2 with the Sponsored crap turned off to avoid getting the MySearch toolbar and all the other sht that takes over your system!

[ Edit ] By the way, the way to get rid of MySearch that is described on the internet pertains to an older version of that crap-ware and doesn't work on the one that comes with MSN Msgr+ 2. [ /Edit ]

I'm using AdShield right now. Can I use Google Toolbar (and its ad blocker) on top of Adshield or should I uninstall it first?

It may be a problem, but it probably won't be. You'll have to try and see how well they play together. Remember, Google Toolbar only blocks pop-ups, though; on-the-page ads will still be shown.

I downloaded and installed Bazooka bar and it works verry good as far as popups go. But after installing it my IE will now crash every half hour or so when I click on the "Favorotes" button or if I right click on the screen. I uninstalled it and the bar went away but the crash prob didn't.

So I thought if I still have the prob then I may as well have the popup blocker working so I reinstalled it and have been popup free but also I have restart IE a-lot.

Any body know how to REALLY get rid of this thing?
