every time I access the internet (IE6) I get a pop-up window on some silly web camera. (the address of the window is http://ads.x10.com/yahoo/jackie.html)

How can I cancel this idiotic pop-up window which comes up every single time.

nothing serious, just a minor annoyance, but I might learn something that would help me avoid similar things in the future....

I don't know why I didn't just search for the cookie or html document in the first place. I did so and wiped it from the face of the earth (well, I guess just from my computer....) It's pretty insidious now...I mean, the darn thing installs itself on my machine and it's not just a text file; it's a 3kb text file PLUS six or seven gif's and a flash movie...!

thanks Eddie...

In case you get into more of the pop ups, thought I would mention; I 've been using POW to get rid of the pop up windows and so far, have had good luck with it. You can set it to just zap the ones you don't want, so the useful ones will still appear. I found it at:

I also use POW and think its very handy at killing those annoying pop-ups.
And like Toby said, you get to choose which ones you want to get rid of.
