    click on safari in the toolbar, then click empty cache. click safari again and then click reset sfari. this should clear everything out of safari.

    And make sure you have the block pop-ups tab selected.
    Alternatively use Firefox, which does a better job of blocking these things.
    Try my custom Mac Forums Search Engine: Mac Forums Google Search

    You know I used to get those on my old white iMac. I didn't start getting them until I installed acquisition. When I removed acquisition, the porn pop ups stopped.

    Do you have acquisition installed?
