It came to my attention when i'm using Aol big gray pop-ups come up on my screen. Does anyone have a FREE site to destroy pop-ups? I'm getting really sick of this... -_-

I like to use Google's toolbar pop up blocker (works really well), and it's free. It works for Internet Explorer, I don't think it works for AOL.

This program seems to be compatible with AOL: http://download.com.com/3000-7786-10233989.html?tag=lst-4-3 (KewlBar Free Pop Up Blocker). It's also free, you should give that a try.

There's also a program that can remove the popups completely, as well as any other Adware and Spyware. The program is called Adaware. You can find it here :smile::

Here's a GREAT idea! LOSE AOL. AOL is a disgrace to ISPs! Horrible speeds... it butchers hi-speed AND dialup connections. they can boast their crappy "TopSpeed Technology", but they don't meantion it messes with the images. =P AOL's AND NetZero are wannabes. they should start over, and go back to the days of AOL 5.0. When the speeds were good and the progging was better. =P MSN is the stuffz for you people. Cheap, AND Microsoft, so you know, there'll not be compatibility issues. :P
