    This annoying pop up on this site i was on came up and says the only way to unlock the page is to complete the survey.
    The popup says 'Premium Content area and is powered by CPAlead.com and i now can't scroll down the page or anything, it's given me a few surveys i must complete which i can win a prize from, but it's obviously dodgy.
    So do you know anyway I can get rid of this without having to complete the survey??
    Thanks

    What site are you trying to get onto??

    The best way to get rid of pop ups is to get Firefox, then get an add-on like WOT and Adblock. Then you'll see what websites are rated to be dodgy and it block pretty much all pop ups!

    Firefox + Adbloc Plus + WOT (Web of Trust) ( i have probably only had a handful of popups and Ads thrown at me this year)

    As with the above posters, I stopped using Internet Explorer and became a Firefox convert - http://www.mozilla-europe.org/en/firefox/ and have had almost zero problems with pop-ups since.
