At the risk of seeming a complete moron, would this get rid of those damn annoying pop-up dialog box messages that I get about once a day, or is there some other way to get rid of those?
Umm, Are you talking about when you get those, that are AD's, even when IE is closed?
As shown herehttp://www.microsoft.com/WindowsXP/pro/using/howto/communicate/version45/images/msgr_spam_01.jpg
If so, go here for instructions on how to disable Microsofts messenger service(it is a POS and waste of system resources anyways).http://www.theeldergeek.com/messenger_service_popups.htm
If that is not what you are talking about, holler at us again, maybe in the latest OotB if this one has gone the way of the do-do bird!
P.S. Firebird is great! If you just download the file, and not the install exe you have to add something to the sys registry for plug-ins to install correctly, let me know if you have any trouble with that (odds are though, you downloaded the installing exe, not just the zip)
Other troubles can come about trying to install plug-ins as well, just ask for help here! As it is well worth the trouble!
Haha Bronco and me posted same thing, on same minute!
The best part is you can decide on a site by site basis who to block and who not to block
BTW, Mozilla, Firebird, Hell, I think every browser BUT IE can do that built in
