Re: Another popup solution, was Re: accessing the google toolbar with JFW 5

Hmmm... I have it running on four different computers, each has been
installed at a different time, and no one in my Address Book has ever been
sent any such email.  It's still the best Pop-Up blocker.  To each his own,
but I haven't seen or experienced any evidence that the Pop-Up Stopper I'm
using does the damage I'm hearing here.  Perhaps this is one of those cases
I warned about, where one has to be careful what one gets.  Just because
it's called Pop-Up Stopper doesn't mean it is; I've seen numerous bogus
Popup Killer products, only one of which is the "real" Popup Killer product.
The program I'm running is made by PanicWare and is version 3.0.1008.  I
have Auto Updates turned off and I simply don't touch the menu items in the
SysTray to "Tell others" and the like, that's likely something that would
generate unwanted emails.  Between my use and the other three computers, one
would think if anything bad was going on, it would have appeared before now.
I'm not doubting this experience, I'm just telling you it hasn't happened to
me and I've been using it successfully for over a year.
