Pop up blocker question

Guest

It appears some pop ups are still appearing even though I have the SP2 pop up
blocker settings at "high". When going on ESPN.com a single pop up used to
show prior to SP2, after downloading SP2, this popup then would be blocked.
Now for the last couple of weeks this pop up will now comes through even
though the settings are high and then the icon appears at the bottom of IE
saying that popups were allowed. ESPN is not in my settings to allow any
popups so I am not sure what is occurring. Any help would be appreciated.

You may wish to install a secondary pop-up blocker which is standard
with the Google Toolbar or MSN Toolbar.

Thanks, I searched through the FAQ without much success. I have adaware on my
system and do a full system scan at least once a week and that was clean
also. I will try the Google toolbar, thanks for the link, I have heard good
comments on it.
