Do you have any other pop up preventers like that one?


I downloaded Pow.exe at your suggestion quite some time ago to screen pop ups during internet sessions. Just recently I can only get IExplorer launched successfully if Pow.exe is not launched or is paused.

I removed all the URLs from POW that are not for sure identifiable as advertisements. Still no help.

The symptom is IE launches for a second and then is terminated. My home page is set to myATT, a customizable ATT.NET page. I did verify that POW database does not contain this home page.

Any suggestions? I am ready to uninstall POW and look for another popup preventer. Got any new popup preventers that you like??
