My pop-up blocker on firefox isn't letting anything through at all. I actually haven't seen 1 popup at all. However I also run software to delete the spyware on my computer 2-3 times a week as well.
If you are getting a lot of pop-ups, here is what you do
1. Make sure you have a browser that will block pop-ups. I use firefox. I believe internet explorer version 7 also blocks pop-ups.
2. If you do have a browser that blocks pop-ups but you are still seeing them, you need to make sure you didn't make webkinzinsider.com a "pop-up exception" For firefox, you go under tools, then options. From there you will see a check box next to "BLOCK POP-UPS" - Make sure that box is checked and then click on the link right next to that that says "exceptions". The exception list will indicate all the website that you said "you can go ahead and allow pop-ups on this site" If webkinzinsider.com is on that list, just delete it.
3. I strongly recommend dowloading software that will delete spyware from your computer. Spybot is free and that is what I use and highly recommend. I run it 2-3 times a week but even 1 a week should help. Heck even once every two weeks is better than nothing.
Those 3 things should make a huge difference. Getting rid of spyware will also help your computer to run faster.
