To escape from the popup ads, I downloaded Popki Popup Closer, an ultralight free program at 176kb. It worked like a charm. Or so I thought. The problem came in when it started closing more than just popup ads. It also started closing any window not in full size and started to get more on my nerves. It did not know how to differenciate a popup ad and a small browser window. Finally, I got rid of the program. Looks like there is no escaping !!
