you could change to a browser with a built in popup killer. Opera does a good job, I have mine set to only accept requested popups, if not it doesn't show them at all.

well alongside IE i also use Firefox which has a built in pop-up stopper, works like a charm.

only problem is sometimes it doesn't render pages properly so I still wanna keep IE.

Just installed the google bar, works great Smiley

I recommend FireFox as well.

It may also be worth scanning your machine for spyware.

I go with Firefox. But for sites that require IE use Avant Browser from www.avantbrowser.com or use the Agent Switcher plug in for Firefox.

XP SP2 does not come with IE7. It has IE6 SP2 which has a pop-up stopper, download blocker and an add-in manager (for Active X, Java)
