I am a webmaster in china.. Visitors that come to my website are being attacked by pop-ups from our competitors. Basicaly the visitors have all downloaded a toolbar from a company called Sohu, Sohu is a big Chinese portal (similar to Yahoo). When they install the toolbar it allows Sohu to 'push' pop-up ads that are relevant (ie competition) whenever a domain is recognised. Sohu then sell this 'ad space'

So im looking at this from a webmasters point of view, not the browser owner. Does anyone know of anything I can do in my website to stop, this horrible piece of software putting pop-ups all over my website.
