Windows XP SP2 and a Pop Up Test

I found a really cool site to test your programs ability to block popup ads. I tried it running nothing but Windows XP Professional with SP2 installed and Internet Explorer 6. For those of you who don’t know, SP2 includes a new IE protocols to protect your system. One of these new protocols is to automatically block popups. SP2 passed with flying colors. It blocked all the conventional popups and all the advanced popups AND it also allowed all the good popups (windows that open when you click on something on purpose). Anyways, I was very impressed. Way to go Microsoft.
