    These may come in useful;) also the "Google taskbar" is good for blocking pop-up type spam, don't know about e-mail though.

    You have to edit your HOSTS file to include all of the URLS of the ad severs.

    Two words to get rid of spyware and popups: Mozilla Firefox. If you are still using Internet Exploder I HIGHLY recommend trying it out.
    http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/

    I’ve used IE for years occasionally trying out Mozilla and Navigator occasionally. What colossal, wonderous POS. Invariably I ended up back on IE for several reasons all rather big ones. The introduction of Pheonix that turned into Firebird that now is Firefox (Can you say identity crisis?) has limited my IE usage to maybe 10%. There are VERY few sites that don’t work well with Firefox and the included features such as download manager, popup blocker, themeing ability, tabbed browsing,etc makes Firefox, IMHO, one of the best browsers on the market. What is even scarier is that its still beta. .8 specifically. And even at .8 its 100% stable. I have NEVER crashed with Firefox. Its gotten a little slow at times but I’ve attributed that to having about 6+ tabs open.
