I have IE 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158IS, running with Zone Alarm
Pro 5.5.062.004 and I have no problems with popups, etc. What the Ad
Blocking of ZA doesn't catch Windows security centre, etc, works out.
Make sure your security setting are set properly and try getting something
like Zone Alarm Pro that will block pop ups/pop under, etc...
