  • Alright, why the help am I suddenly getting popups?!

    I don't see any notices that Markos has altered the Default-Special style.

    AFAIK pop-ups aren't anything anything new in the standard outlook. Did you surf on other websites simultaneously in (a) different window/s?

      I'm getting a buttload of popups lately.

      Is it because I'm using lite-special?

        Special style means you get 1 banner ad at the top and some amount of popups, i believe. But it's every 12 hours or so.

          I get mine every hour or so. I have 4 pop ups in my task bar right now.

            Some popups open other popups, which then go on to reproduce and multiply.
            I'm building a wagon! On some other part of the internets, obviously (but not that other site).

              When you go to the other website sections, you get a pop-up.

              I hardly get any pop-ups. Keep it that was please

                  It just happened again. I tried to load a page, and got a pop-up. Paying a little more attention this time, I notice that suddenly I'm not in the format I chose in my options. In fact, when I tried to go to my control panel it said I wasn't registered! Nothing happened to my cookie.

                  I started getting "no answer" errors. I cut my connection and reconnected; now it finds sites but still acts as if I'm unregistered at Apolyton. Restart browser, now all is well. But why?

                    It also appears that the "Free shipping on the Apolyton Store!" banner triggers a pop-up. Bad enough that outside source banners do that, but no Apolyton banner should be so uncouth.

                        No offense, dood. It was happening almost every time that banner came up (I can't say unequivocally every time), and seldom with others.

                        Now there are two annoying new banners ("Hit the target," flashing "Winner") which gave me popunders the first time they came up. They have this in a grey box at the bottom: if (parseFloat(navigator.appVersion) == 0) { document.write(''); } //-->

                          you are talking about 468x60 banners?

                          what version of ie do you have?

                              There's two good solutions.

                              1. Mozilla, when the "Open unrequested windows" box is unticked.

                              http://www.mozilla.org

                              2. PopUp Killer or any other good pop-up filtering software.
