    [Rant] What is wrong with the world? I just want to read the webpage!! I don't want to watch a Nissan truck take over my screen for 30 seconds. What is the deal? Is there any way to close it without waiting? I guess I'll just stop going to www.fourwheeler.com [/Rant]

    Yep, go to www.google.com and download the "toolbar" here. It blocks popups so you dont ever need to worry about them again. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The only thing with toolbar stuff is it usually contains spyware....but oh well, who cares these days.

    Stop using a browser that allows popups. Heck, without wasting any time on it, you MIGHT be able to configure IE not to.

    I use Firebird, but I'm sure Mozilla and Opera probably don't allow popups either. Have some quirks to go along with, but if one doesn't work, I just switch. I love tabbed browsing and NO popups!

    I just closed it out by clicking the black x in the little gray box the ad had.
