-=PCTechTalk=- Re: Outpost Firewall

I've had a couple sites that needed popups to work, but none that I go to
that need referrers.  That could be a problem (hassle-wise) because you'd
have to enable referrers as the default and then block them site by site
individually.  Not a fun way to go, and yes, referrers are one popup
vehicle.  How much do you love weatherchannel?  There are a lot of them out
there that behave better.  You could look at the logs and see where the
redirect is going and block those sites in your restricted zone in IE if
they are coming from the same site(s).
