Editors' review

Many ad blockers stop pop-up windows better than Ad Killer does, but this program does a good job of blanking out Flash advertisements. On first launch, the program presents all its options, including what to block and at what level. The interface offers right-click access to most settings, including the blocking levels. In our testing, Low was the only setting that let us open links to Web search strings. Most types of pop-ups will make it through unless you set the level to High, which also blocks links to Web pages. You can hold the Ctrl key to allow a window to open. Ad Killer installs in the background a file called namespace.dll, which is slightly suspicious. Worse, if you just click on the Purchase tab in its settings, the program opens a Web page with a registration form. While most users could hold out for better pop-up blocking, at least Ad Killer doesn't seem to do any harm.
