Are you talking about actual popup windows or "internal popups" accomplished using DHTML layers?

im not sure exactly which they are using.
If I do a search for loans in G I get a page load underneath with results for loans from search scout. but my pop up blocker doesnt block this.

Yeah, I hit one of those yesterday on a news site. It got past Proxomitron.

If you have an instant messenger (IM) program running, some pop-ups will happen since they're using your IM program to get through and not your browser, even though they look like regular browser windows. Therefore, your browser-based pop-up blocker can't stop them. AIM seems to be the worst for this type of pop-up. I'm hoping someday they write a pop-up blocker that also works for IM-based pop-ups too.
Also, don't overlook the more obvious cause - you have some type of "scumware" program installed on your PC.

I'm using PopThis! and that site hasn't pop anything up ;) in my screen.

These weren't AIM.
I'm running proximitron and, while not fully armed to the 100% nuke-on-sight mode it's set fairly high. I also have activex off. No spyware, either, I run adaware, hijackthis, and spybot. I suspect some sort of dhtml-ed layer, but didn't bother checking the code that time.
