    Google toolbar.
    Excellent, although I do use Firefox now, got fed up of how buggy IE was, now I will never go back, no matter how pretty IE8 might be, lol!
    But google toolbar's built in pop-up blocker was really good when I was using IE.

    I also use Firefox, but some people are scared of new things. This is for an elderly couple.

    You should tell them they should be more scared of someone using IE against them, and then install Firefox or Opera for them. I prefer Opera.
