    "Excellent ad blocker!"

    January 29, 2013  |   By b1zqfp

    Version: AdFender 1.60

    Pros

    Works well in blocking ads in all the browsers I have, so this is the very best and does not use too much out of my computer!

    Cons

    Could not stop some of the popups/popunders, but I don't know if I should reconfigure the browsers to turn off their popup blockers so Adfender can do its job, or maybe its just not good enough on certain sites?

    Summary

    I still think this is the best software, and it is free!

    "Ok for a free ad blocker"

    January 25, 2013  |   By BillR700

    Version: AdFender 1.60

    Pros

    Easy to install worked well initially, most pages were ad free

    Cons

    Have had product for about a month and I really don't think they update the blocked ad sites. sites such as yahoo and mail.com initially were ad free for me, now they are clutterd with ads, tried running update kept getting message no updates available and I could not figure out how to add my own rules, help page not clear

    Summary

    Good for a free ad blocker but i guess you get what you pay for. I had Ad Muncher but got tired of their licensing issues..tried this one, while satisfied at first I will try others.

    "Performs as advertised"

    December 29, 2012  |   By JeffS72

    Version: AdFender 1.60

    Pros

    Stopped those annoying popups that occur when you pass your mouse over a highlighted word.

    Cons

    Caused frequent crashes of IE9. Numerous times a day the "IE has stopped responding and needs to close" error message would occur.

    Summary

    Turned out to be more trouble that it was worth. I uninstalled it.

    "Great Program"

    December 29, 2012  |   By Jo Rhyan

    Version: AdFender 1.60

    Pros

    Runs in your system tray so it doesn't bog down your browser when trying to load a page. Blocks ads and unlike a lot of other adblockers does not slow down page loading. I hardly know the that the programs is running.

    Cons

    a rare ad page seeps through every blue moon. Not nearly often enough to be anonyed.

    Summary

    Love this program. Yet another that works, but does not keep my browser from working.

    Updated on Mar 24, 2013

    Well like a lot of other programs, this one fails to hold true. I used it for a few weeks and thought it was great, until all of a sudden it wouldn't block "ANY" ads. That's not the worst part, twice Avast blocked it from doing something malicious while I was browsing. I uninstalled and reinstalled a few times. After the second block by Avast, I ran a scan with Malwarebytes and it found something in Adfender. I don't know what exactly, because my Malwarebytes is not saving a log for some reason; however, whatever it found and removed from Adfender, rendered it incapable of initializing. As I said, I uninstalled and reinstalled to make sure it wasn't a certain version or copy of the download only. I don't know if this because of Adfender makers themselves, but CNET needs to be aware and check the download and program again themselves. Potential users be careful.
