My topic seems to have vanished, so...
Question: does anyone know if there is a way to block "install flash player 7" popups? they're driving me crazy!

If it ain't broken, you're not trying hard enough.

Do you use IE? I use it and I never get that add.

I have a very high (custom) security rating and I must have stopped this function from the browser somewhere...

Now when I get something in flash I only see a big black white square with a small icon at the top left corner... :)

You can block popups in IE by disabling "active scripting". However, this function is not supposed to be a popup blocker, and therefore other things maybe don't work.

I think it also disables automatic virus installation ;)

Just in case you use XP, sp2 has finally added a popup blocker. Also the yahoo and google bar have this feature.

Don't know if they will help to stop flash install requests though.
