anyone know a good popup blocker other than the google toolbar

or perhaps a way to patch the hole in IE that allows stuff to auto DL itself to ones system (ive installed all the microsoft patches and updates but spybot S&D still shows it as a hole.. or is that just spybot bein weird and pointing out stuff that dosent exist)

It could be a false positive. It would help if you list exactly what Spybot is finding. I just avoid the whole issue of IE problems by using the free Firefox browser, instead of IE. You can find it here if interested. http://www.mozilla.o...roducts/firefox

Here's a good place to find some good free popup blockers. But i just use the free popup blocker in Firefox, which has worked very well for me. http://www.spychecke...e/popblock.html

There is an important setting to check in IE (if you insist on using it). Open IE, click on Tools, Internet Options, & the Advanced Tab. Scroll down to the Browsing section, locate a couple of Enable Install On Demand lines. Make sure they are UNchecked.
Failure is not an option, it comes bundled with the software.

Here's one that I use...
PopUpStopper 2.6

It is an old one but good (by Panicware), their newer versions aren't as good, in my opinion. I have used this version for years. Make sure you enable Agressive Popup Control after you install it.

You got it! The report of DSO exploits is a minor glitch in Spybot itself, nothing wrong with your system.
Be wary of strong drink. It may make you shoot at tax collectors, and miss!
