IE8 & Netflix Pop-up
I'm using IE8 on WinXP and when I go to a number of sites, I get a
Netflix pop-up! I have Pop-up Blocker on, but get this pop-up a lot.
I looked thru Pop-up Blocker Options, but do not see anything to block
certain pop-ups - there is the option to allow pop-ups on certain
sites, but I do not have Netflix listed in there.

Any thoughts/suggestions on how to disable this pop-ups would be
appreciated.

I do that on a regular basis - I manually run Spybot, SpySweeper, and
Malwarebytes and have NAV 2010 running in real time. I have a
subscription to AdAware, but it gave me so many problems, that I
uninstalled it.

So far, they have not found anything!
