"Will not uninstall"

January 15, 2015  |  By mackenzie.agee

 |  Version: Ad Annihilator 2.5

Pros

I have none

Cons

The app runs fine, until you try to uninstall it. It force closes the uninstaller. I've tried rebooting, other programs will uninstall, just this one shuts it down. Apparently this is a common issue with this program. I absolutely do not recommend installing this!

"Garbage!!!"

March 01, 2013  |  By TheJules2013

 |  Version: Ad Annihilator 2.5

Pros

None whatsoever!

Cons

Everything!

Summary

I thought I would give this a try from the gallery on my IE, and the minute I restarted the browser, I kept getting a pop-up saying Internet Explorer has stopped working, EVEN WHEN IT WASN'T RUNNING! Like others, I tried uninstalling, but the Unwise.exe kept crashing, so I did a manual custom fix and removed the Internet Explorer file from it, and now my IE is working just fine. I'm glad I didn't pay a penny for this crap! It's not even worth ONE star!

"I do not like this program."

December 11, 2012  |  By parkepi

 |  Version: Ad Annihilator 2.5

Pros

This app is blocking too much of my videos. It is causing the videos not to play correctly. I have tried to uninstall it from my computer but can't. When I try to uninstall it I get a message that says "a problem caused the program to stop working correctly. windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available." No solution seems to be available.

Cons

If you want most videos blocked then you will defiantly like the Ad Annihilator. If you think you might want to uninstall it later, than do not get this because it doesn't uninstall easily.

"No good- at least not this version"

May 17, 2012  |  By iHuman07

 |  Version: Ad Annihilator 2.5

Pros

none
none
none

Cons

everything

Summary

It's all true- doesn't support Firefox, only IE.
Uninstall fails with a popup message in Windows- UNWISE.EXE has stopped working. Indeed, was very unwise to install this soft.
Btw, running Win7 Ultimate SP1

June 29, 2010  |  By levicah

 |  Version: Ad Annihilator 2.5

Pros

NONE WHATSOEVER!

Cons

WARNING!!! YOU WILL REGRET INSTALLING THIS. I HAD TO DOWNLOAD ANOTHER PROGRAM JUST TO UNINSTALL THIS BECAUSE THE WINDOWS UNINSTALLER COULD NOT GET RID OF IT.
