Is there a way to disable popup windows in Internet Explorer?

Is there a way to disable popup windows in Internet Explorer? I'm specifically talking about the one that wants me to install Shockwave Flash player. I don't have it on my computer and definitely don't want it, but I frequently use some web sites that use it so I'm often getting a message that says "I dare you to install Shockwave Flash on your computer now Sucker!" I click no, but I'd rather not get the window in the first place. Is there a way to do that?

    Rise up the speed of your Firefox Browser:

    Open the configuration menu by typing in the following into the field where you normally fill in the URLs:


    In the config menu you have to set up the following changes:

    - network.http.pipelining (put “true”)

    - network.http.proxy.pipelining (put “true”)

    - network.http.pipelining.maxrequests put on 100

    - network.http.max-connections 48

    - network.http.max-connections-per-server 16

    - network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy 8

    - network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server 4

    You save the changes by clicking the right button of your mouse somewhere on the screen and choose new -> integer from the menu. Now you have to write nglayout.initialpaint.delay into the popup and type in number 0 into the next window.

    That´s it, now you are able to surf much faster threw the internet with your Firefox browser!

    Yes. Just don't use it.

    Firefox has a great pop blocker that blocks almost everything.
