Editors' Review

Despite the ongoing efforts of browser developers, adware and pop-up ads continue to annoy the Web surfer. But this little Internet Explorer add-on will help reclaim the pop-up-free Web-browsing experience you remember from the golden age of the Internet. Or at the very least, reduce the aggravating intrusion of unwanted advertising.

AdBlocker Pro installs an unobtrusive icon--a small green shield--on both your IE toolbar and the IE status bar. We were able to configure it by clicking either icon, which we found handy for folks who may want to rely on accessing ad-blocking tools from a location other than an already-cluttered toolbar. In our tests, we found configuring the tool a very simple process, enabling us to specify at which sites the tool should kill pop-up and flash ads. We also liked the filter log, which listed the blocked items from the sites we visited.

AdBlocker Pro performed well in our tests, and we were pleased with its generous trial period, which should allow any user time enough to decide whether to register and purchase the tool. You can probably find similar blockers with more bells and whistles, but we liked the simplicity AdBlocker Pro offers. We wish it were available for other browsers beside IE, but maybe a future version will offer that option.

"Not a good direction to take"

May 21, 2012  |  By RJD185

 |  Version: Adblock Pro (32-bit) 3.6

Pros

You can choose not to install it

Cons

There are better programs out there provided by more scrupulous organisations

Summary

Originally built as a parasitic product living off Adblock Plus' reputation (which is a great Firefox add on, not IE, with a good solid reputation) this 'tool' has a very chequered history. Strongly suggest you look at wider reports on the web to get a decent picture of what your options are on IE before making up your mind. I'm looking for a route from Firefox to IE and Adblock Plus is a key feature I need a replacement for. Based on my research so far, this will not be it. Surprised by the 5* CNet editor rating. IMO and YMMV.

"I'm in the trial period and I probably won't buy it."

January 06, 2012  |  By dtrend35

 |  Version: Adblock Pro (32-bit) 3.6

Pros

It does block some of the popups.

Cons

It doesn't block some particulary annoying popups like: AD.Doubleclick.net and SO.MDN.net. I've emailed their support group twice but they will not respond. And their help tab on the dropdown menu results in an error screen. Doesn't look like a reputable company to me.

Summary

Look for something better, I am.

"Ad-Block is a scam. No license key is ever provided."

December 30, 2011  |  By rschase5120

 |  Version: Adblock Pro (32-bit) 3.6

Pros

Worked well during trial period.

Cons

After the trial period I bought it---twice: once for home and once for my office. In NEITHER CASE did I ever receive a license key. And ever since I get their stupid popup message that the trial period has ended and would I please enter a product key. MULTIPLE EMAIL MESSAGES to them have gone unanswered. Even an email to C-NET does not help. Nobody really gives a hoot.

Summary

Bottom line: They take your money and never provide a key, which means they've scammed you for the price of purchase. In my case, twice.

"Product works as advertized"

December 05, 2011  |  By alphaxp

 |  Version: Adblock Pro (32-bit) 3.6

Pros

Have run the last two versions and have found it to block almost all ads. Am running it in IE8 and Chrome. Have gotten licenses promptly purchasing with both Paypal and credit card.

Cons

You will learn that on some sites you have to disable it as some logon boxes and other needed pop-ups are blocked.

Summary

Good software.
