I'm sure you've encountered these in IE or Firefox - the double underlined text that you hover over with mouse and a pop-up ad comes up. Very annoying.

Is there a way to disable?

I use AdBlock Plus to block them in Firefox, and for Internet Explorer I block them using OpenDNS's domain blocking feature.

Another possibility is to use Privoxy.

Second that on ad block plus in FF. I only use IE for Microsoft sites that don't work in FF without additional plugins or the rare site that doesn't display right in FF.
