Out of the Blue

After a stretch where the older version was not updated as work progressed on the update, the Lavasoft Website now carries a new version 6 of Ad Aware (thanks MajorGeeks). The new version of what's become an indispensable internet utility (which finds and eliminates spyware and scumware) could not come at a better time for me, as I have recently been afflicted by a bout of self-spawning pop-ups... I can only hope the 40-some suspicious items it found on my computer included the source of this bother so it can be eliminated. Yeesh.

You can also get Phoenix, its based of the mozzilla core. It has everything that IE has, all the shortcut keys work in it. Its only 10 megs, and it runs fast.

When a popup would happen an icon apears on teh status bar, if you click that icon you can let that www site send you popups, or not.
