I was asked if their are any easy ways to stop those annoying pop-up ads,
well here is one way.

1. Use the find file and Look for a file called hosts.

(on my machine it is located C:\WINNT4\system32\drivers\etc)

2. Open it with Notepad.

Then enter the following lines at the bottom:
(use copy and paste)       ads.x10.com       www.aureate.com       overflow.adsoftware.com       www.adsoftware.com       www.radiate.com       aim.aureate-im.com       aim2.aureate-im.com

If you have Windows ME you may need to create a file called hosts. if you
only have one called hosts.sam That is not the right one.

This should stop the worst of the ads (like xfreakin10 and the credit report

Pleni sunt Porci et sollemnes.  |The swein are full and solemn.
Brevi audiemus cantum sonorum   |Soon we will hear their song,
profundumque.                   |sonorous and profound.
