Stop Annoying Pop-ups Without Pop-up Blockers



Did you ever go to warez, cracks, file sharing sites and you are bombarded with 10 windows opening up at a time, with porn, spam etc?
There is an easy way to block about 90-95% of this shit, without using any pop-up stopping programs .

PopUpsAbhiTricks

This is for Internet Explorer  but it will work on other browsers too.
Follow The steps:
1. Go to TOOLS and then INTERNET OPTIONS.
2. Click the SECURITY tab, move the slider up to HIGH and click APPLY.
This applies the highest security settings to IE, which blocks everything, including JavaScript, Applets, and so on that pop-ups are based upon.
Remember that Some places like online banks and other websites need these functions to work properly. So you'll need to re-enable it.
Again

1. Go to TOOLS and then INTERNET OPTIONS.
2. Click the SECURITY tab, CUSTOM LEVEL, scroll down to SCRIPTING, and under ACTIVE SCRIPTING, select the ENABLE radio button.
3. Click APPLY and you're pretty much done!
Note: This does not completely remove pop-ups and other annoyances, but it sure helps a lot, without having to trash your computer with pop-up blockers.

Stay Safe..

Hv gr8 day!
