    4. I rarely visit sites that make use of popups, and I rarely use IE

    I have no idea, as Firefox doesn't track such things.

    Mine used to be about 2500 blocked. But now IE blocks most of them, when it doesn't, Google still blocks it. It is rare that I see a pop-up. I hope that pop-up advertisers go bankrupt from this!

    Just judging from sites I know have popups, I'd say a 25,000 since the start of December...

    I didn't use pop-up blockers until I went onto one site.

    When I left the site, there was about 5 popups instantly.

    Then my mouse got frozen to the popup window, so I couldn't click on it to exit.

    When I press CTRL+ALT+DEL and finally closed all the windows, my computer froze and I had to restart it.

    Finally, when I made a quick check I found about 40 new spyware. That isn't surprising, but I had actually made a check a few hours before going onto that crappy site.


    After that, I started blocking popups.
