windows to test your system's susceptibility to them. Not all computers
will necessarily behave adversely when 'popped', but for the majority,
the ill effects they cause can be easily seen and even anticipated. Several
varieties of the Popup Crash Demo are availible to test various aspects
of your system...
DISCLAIMER: This page may cause your system to
run sluggishly, page to disk excessively...it may even cause your browser/computer
to crash outright. Proceed with caution and understand that you do so at
your own risk. The Author hereby disclaims all liability for all the nasty
things popup ads, and this page in particular, may do to your computer.
The pops will just keep coming! To stop them at anytime, click the 'X'
in the upper-right of the pop window rapidly (for Windows95 users, anyways)...they
will probably stop on their own if your system becomes severely low on
These are plain, text-only popups that will be quickly created/destroyed
formatting such as tables, rulers and other cool things. If you have a
program such as Nuts & Bolts WinGauge, open it now. Pay special attention
to your GDI resources...
These pops may contain a graphic or two in addition to plain text, and
possibly (if I get around to working it in) a dynamically-loading GIF banner
to simulate an actual popup ad. Again, watch your GDI, free memory, heaps,
Try this at your own risk! These may contain fancy formatting (tables,
nifty fonts, etc.), graphics, and possibly some fancy-schmancy Java scripting
to timed-distroy or add text/links to the pop. These are much more likely
to cause your browser to crash with one of those 'illegal operation' boxes.
So don't say I didn't warn ya. For this one, forget watching your resources,
watch your ass! :)
MSIE is particularly susceptible to this one.
