The best bet for avoiding these nasty tricks and traps is to always disable java on your browser when going surfing. I got so pissed off with having my screen fill up with unwanted windows, and my back button disabled, that in the end I plumped for keeping java permanently switched off.
Yes, there are some sites that use Java for legitimate purposes, but my view is that if a designer has to resort to using Java to make the site more interesting, then there is something lacking in content... :)
