Pop-up Blockers

Does anybody have a suggestion of a good pop-up ad blocking program. I found quite a few through Google, but I always like to get others' opinions before downloading anything.

lots of 'em
Webwasher - www.webwasher.com
filtering proxy for win/linux/mac that can prevent almost every popup and banner ad.
Can get in the way with some websites.
freeware
also similar to Proxomitron - http://www.flaaten.dk/prox/

PopupKiller - http://software.xfx.net
windows only, uses a blacklist. works with ie, netscape/mozilla, and opera.
freeware.

Meaya Popup Adfilter - www.meaya.com
my fav for windows, it's ie only but does a better job at preventing popups then any i've used. it uses very little resources.
it's shareware.

Opera, Netcaptor and Mozilla have built-in popup filtering. Mo's works the best IMO since it has more options and allows requested popups.

Webwasher is great. For once I don't have to post the link because someone beat me to it.

I dont use any ad blocker program, since I rarely get them, so I don't mind closing the odd 1 or 2.

Well I've tried Killad and Webwasher so far. Killad is pretty simple and does what I want. Webwasher has a lot more features, but ultimately uses a lot more system resources. Also, I tried configuring it a few different ways and it still didn't stop some pop-ups. I'm gonna keep it around for when I have some time to mess with it.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Hey...a question. Is there a way to edit dropdown menus? I've uninstalled Webwasher, but when I right click on a web page I still have the option "Add to filter list (WebWasher)." I hate it when I uninstall a programs and it leaves sh!t behind.

I really need help with this. Perhaps there's a registry editing thing that can be done? I accidentally chose the Webwasher option once and it caused IE to freeze up (presumably because Webwasher no longer exists on my computer).

Found it. Now, do I just delete it? I haven't used the registry editor before, but I'm learning.

i just rightclicked and deleted the "Add to filterlist (WebWasher)" folder on the left. then restart ie, should go poof.

if you are still too nervous:
"After uninstalling WebWasher, 'Add to filterlist (WebWasher)' still persists in the context menu of Internet Explorer.
Please request a patch to remove the context menu entry at support@webwasher.com. It will be sent to you promptly via e-mail."

that's from http://www.webwasher.com/en/products.../faq_bugs1.htm
