    click on safari in the top left of the screen, then preferences from the drop down menu.

    navigate to security and make sure the block pop ups box is ticked.

    if that fails, download ad blocker

    Just go with AdBlock.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
