I installed Popup Killer on three different machines and
was unable to download banned popups from your
central server. I received an "incorrect password" error

    Yep! I'm having the same problem. Also, the "bug report"
    URL in the help system still points back to software.xfx.net.

    That's because the original developer discontinued support of this
    feature. You can download an active list from Boo-Boo's site:

    http://software.xfx.net/~bruce/

    As well as get more help there. You'll have to download the list, then
    select "blacklist:" then "merge" from the main menu.

    That is the exact same problem that I just posted on this
    AM. I cannot get it to download anything, says I need
    password, or incorrect password, or error, etc.... and also, it
    states to register I need a license code, that I should have
    received in email, but I never received a license code in
    email. Help!

    Hi,

    I'm the guy who opened this thread. The reason why you
    can't use synchronize and the way to get the black list is
    described below in the 2002-12-06 09:04 message by "dnarby"

    PUK is still the best popup kiler and it's still free!

    Regards,
    Nick Garnett

    Are you people Idiots? READ THE SECOND POST!!! The
    developer has discontinued support for the synchronization.
    this product was commercially discontinued and released to
    the OSS community.

    Wow. I'll call the "nobody" who posted the flame at
    today "Mr. Nobody". Obviously, Mr Nobody did not read the
    posts he so vehemently suggests that other people read. Or
    perhaps Mr Nobody just likes to vent for no reason. Maybe
    it's chronic indigestion.

    This is a closed issue. Yes, somebody posted a response
    on "2003-06-07 01:04" that could have been avoided had
    that person read previous responses. However, that was 2
    months ago and I responded to that person with basically the
    same message as Mr Nobody did, although I was somewhat
    more gentle in my approach. You see, I make mistakes too,
    and I like to be treated courteously. Therefore, I am
    courteous to everyone that isn't blatantly arrogant. I guess
    Mr Nobody ago doesn't think he makes mistakes.
