Popup Blocker Not Catching this Popup

Post by kirbyk » Wed Dec 17, 2008 4:01 pm

Whenever I go to this site: http://myespn.go.com/blogs/nfceast I get a blank popup window. There are no exceptions in the popup blocker screen to allow popups from this site, so how is this popup happening?

Hello,
Avant's popup blocker is successfully blocking popups on this website here.
What's your Avant Browser's version/build? (Please go to Help>About Avant Browser...)
IE8(Pro), Microsoft Security Essentials
Main PC:

Secondary PC same as primary but with Windows 7 x64 Ultimate as the OS.

11.7.19

The popup I get every time now at that site simply says "about:blank" in the adresss bar.

Can anyone else duplicate this? Happens to me every time I go to the site.

It didn't hapen to me.
But I use AdMuncher instead of AVANT-Popup-Blocker.
From AVANT I only use the Banner-Killer.

If Yours Popup is empty:
Do You use Spybot S&D?
Maybe this great Tool hides some Graphix with his Apllications for the Hosts-File.
Sorry for my Spaghetti-English...

No I don't use Spybot.

This is the only site that Avant allows popups other than ones I exlicitly told it to.
