And your problem was what? E-mail advertisements in E-mail comes from you or someone putting your e-mail address on the internet when you signed up for something and did not read the fine print. The only way to stop them is to get another e-mail address and do not use it for signing up for anything. You can try to block them with a spam filter that is built in to most e-mails. Outlook express has a way to block the sender if you look at the tools - Message setting. I can't help you much more than that because you did not give any information at all. I had to guess what you wanted.
Rate me if this helped.

    Try this.......... It could be coming from spyware that has gotten you information from your computer. I have even had this problem before. Believe me, you are not alone. I have even gotten e-mails from my own company. I am the only one that can set up e-mail for my company. The e-mails were made up some how by copying my e-mail and changing the user name. This is a big problem these days. You did not tell me what e-mail program that you were using. This will help me help you better if you tell me. There are many things that you can do. If the e-mail provider has a way to set up a spam blocker you might want to use it. Most providers offer this. You will have to log into their server to do this. You might want to e-mail me direct for me to help you on this better. This can be frustrating and takes time to stop. Sometimes the best thing is to get a new e-mail address. I will keep helping you until it is solved but it might take some time. If you start a new e-mail you need to make sure that you only use the new one for personal things. Never put your new e-mail on a web site or use it to sign up for anything. Use another e-mail address to do this stuff. People make money selling your e-mail address. Please rate me if I am helping you.

    Try these things though and let me know how it goes.

    Turn the system restore off. System restore keeps everything
    in restore. Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay
    in your system. Run Spybot S&D (This program is free and is better
    than using msconfig as long as you go through the settings and change
    everything to the highest settings.) Then do the same with Adaware 2008 (sounds
    stupid to use 2 things for spyware, but one catches what the other one
    does not.). I have links on my website
    ( These links go directly to the
    download so you will not get the run around. You would do good to try a
    program called Window Washer. This is a great program that completely
    cleans anything in your computer that you do not need. It will not clean
    out anything that you have to have. I have used this for years to clean
    out my customers computers and have cleaned as much as 3 gigs of trash
    out. If you contact me I will give you some tools that I have for free
    that will do a great job on your computer. I have them ready to download
    and I will give you the link.

    Send me the complete specs of your system and I can help you more. I hope
    that this helps you. There is no reason the really buy a program for
    spyware when there are free things to use that work great. Free AVG is a
    great Antivirus and yes it is also free. It will check your e-mail coming
    and going. It will also let your friends now that the E-mail does not
    have a virus. It also has a spyware program that is free. This day
    and time with all of the spyware out on the net you can never have too many
    programs for spyware. I would not run all of them at the same time
    though. Make sure that you do not use your computer during any
    scan. Defrag is also something to do after you do everything else.
    Some people will tell you that should not reload your computer. If
    nothing seems to work then sometimes that is the only good way to get it
    repaired right. Most of the programs that come pre-installed on a store
    bought computer is useless and most are even trail software that causes
    problems when they expire. Let me know if this helps at all. Please
    rate me if it helps.

Stop pop ups free

D-MAC852 is correct asking for more information concerning OS and browser used.
If your using Windows you can virtually eliminate the majority of the advertising junk and pop ups with the Browser Firefox running a plugin called adblockplus. If your machine has spyware already installed.
This may be pushing the advertising/pop ups you are experiencing.
SuperAntispy is a good "Free" utility that will get rid of some of the most stubborn spyware. I usually run this once a Month more if I suspect nefarious activities. :)
This is for Windows so hopefully this will be useful for you:

Download Firefox Free Web Browser
Adblock Plus
SUPERAntiSpyware Remove Malware Remove Spyware AntiMalware AntiSpyware...

Good luck hope this helps!

  • Complain to your ISP. If you receive an unrequested and unwanted message, forward it to your ISP. (Your ISP, such as BT Internet or a local operation, provides you Internet access and service.) Ask your access provider to block incoming mail from that address and to complain on your behalf.
  • Use an online blocking service. Check to see what filtering options your access provider or email service may provide to subscribers. America Online, for example, has a preferred mail option (keyword = preferred mail) to protect a user’s account from receiving email from known junk emailers. iVillage also has some filtering services in its email programme. Secondly, look at free online services such as Bright Light Technologies, with screens mail before your read it and promises to eliminate up to 90 per cent of spam without eradicating wanted email.

  • Install a filtering programme. There are dozens on the market. Two that we like are Spambuster, a shareware programme, or PC Spamkiller which has one of the highest ratings on the market.

  • Forward offenders’ names to websites committed to stamping out spam. Two examples are, the Blacklist of Internet Advertisers and SpamCop. Both are US sites, but then the States has a bigger problem with spam than the UK and Europe.
  • Complain to your ISP. To do this first you’ll need to make sure you have the right domain name (whatever follows the @ sign, such as, since spammers often disguise their domains so nice people like you can’t find them to complain.
  • Visit the SpamCop site’s FAQ for tips on how to find domain names. Once you have the right domain, send complaints to the following standardised address: abuse@ (their domain); postmaster@ (their domain); root@ (their domain); admin@ (their domain).

    Printing from e-mail

    The problem you are having is caused because you are printing from a web based email and just clicking print prints the email, the frame and all the advertising on the page.

    to avoid this try the following:

    1. Doubleclick the email to open it, not just use a preview pane.
    2. Highlight just the text that you want to print. (You can click the cursor at the beginning of the text, hold down the CNTL Key and then press down arrow till all lines of text you want are highlighted)
    3. Click FILE, PRINT on the browser menu (DO NOT CLICK THE PRINT ICON)
    4. A Print window should appear, in the PRINT RANGE section, click SELECTION, then click OK. At this time, only the text you selected should print.

    I need a power tip for the kensington power adapter for my new dell xps M1730.. I contacted Kensington and they are not much help...

    In the same boat. I've contacted Dell and gave him a good talking too. They sell the Kensington, advertised as compatible with XPS when it's not. It's false advertising and should refund you.
