I am using Avast home edition for the last 6-7 months. Have no problems adn I think it provides pretty good support (its free for the home user).
I was using Mcafee before that, but had too many problems of the avirus software not catching viruses even though the dat files were up to date.

revtech, why don't you try google toolbar's pop up blocker (toolbar.google.com). it's useful too.
still, it depends on what kind of sites you are talking about. I think it only blocks pop ups using javascript.

u also need adaware(lavasoft) and spybot to stop adwares and spywares from popping up.

I'd be wary about downloading 'free' stuff from Google or Yahoo, as these may contain their own spyware too. If Bonzi Buddy could, so can Yahoo and Google.

There was a certain patch released by Norton very recently, which addressed this problem. Atleast on my laptop. It was about 400 kb in size.

Just received a CD from Norton. latest in-line release: Small business pack 10.0 I guess that's what you get for buying it officially.

These days I am using Windows Live OneCare.
Its install once forget it kinda software.
Currently in Beta stage though it is very stable. And all those who install it before 30th April will get huge discount once it comes out of beta.
