Pop-up stomper

This member-submitted tip tells how to kill those annoying pop-up ads in your browser.

In Internet Explorer 6, it's possible to use security settings to kill those annoying pop-up ads. Simply add each site with pop-ups to the list of Restricted Sites in the Security tab of Internet Options. That will kill ALL incoming files or programs from that site. If you want to download files from that site, you need to hit the Advanced button on that page and click on Enable Downloads.
