I have a Dell notebook with a 10" screen. When I go to the website, there is a pop up that appears when you go there for the first time that day. Because my screen is so small, I can't scroll up or down to get to the Close X box in the top right corner. The pop up is one of those annoying ones that moves down the screen with you as you try to arrow down the page. I already have the pop up blocker activated - this is one of the few sites where I want to see the ads. I have also tried using Ctrl-W but that closes the whole window. I just want to be able to advance past the ad window.

You can try to press the Space bar to do the default action (OK). You may need to press the tab key to set focus to that button. Also disabling JavaScript temporarily will stop that pop-up from moving and may work to click that button, but disabling JavaScript may have other unwanted side effects.

Isn't there a close X on that pop-up?

I didn't get a pop-up visiting that page, so it is possible that only registered users get it.
You can try to clear the cookies from that site to see if that helps.
