My personal favorite is AdShield but it is one of the most expensive ones out there. The two mentioned by the previous poster are highly regarded (and free).

I just started using the Mozilla browser and it stops pop-ups better than anything I've used before. Big Thumb Up

I guess Firefox blocks pop-ups too but it lacks some other features that I need.

I use proxomitron for total pop up blocking control. It's basically a configurable software proxy that lets you do regex s/r on all of the html coming into the computer BEFORE it hits the browser. This way you can target very specific things as well as block popups. It's a bit more tech-savvy than just a popup blocker but it works the best out of everything I've tried. You need to set up the filters before it'll work but there's lots of filter collections out there.

What I like is that I can filter/change anything. So for example if a IMG SRC link has "*.doublick.com" in it I can just throw out the url and replace it with "AN AD USED TO BE HERE" or something.

Proxomitron is no longer being maintained by the original author but it's a very stable powerful program nonetheless.

Personally i don't ever use a standalone pop-up stopper.
Reason being is that if you were to have a rootkit/coolwwwsearch type problem with keylogging/trojan/pop-ups, the bit you would find easily would be the pop-ups.

For pop-up blocking i personally use MyIE2 which blocks from within its own windows. Using an external pop-up program would disguise a possible severe infection.

PS Sorry for being so negative ;)
