AdsCleaner

CNET Editors' review

In addition to effective pop-up and ads blocking, AdsCleaner encompasses so many other features it's easy to get lost. AdsCleaner actually has two neatly designed interfaces, one for configuring its settings and the other for managing databases of Web sites, your Favorites, and search engines.

During testing, we successfully connected to the Internet and surfed without the annoyance of ads and pop-up windows--but only with Internet Explorer, as the program doesn't work with other browsers. You can take snapshots of pages, assign alias names to certain sites, and even clean up a few tracks at shutdown, at start-up, or at a specified interval of minutes.

AdsCleaner also includes an optional download for automatically filling out online forms, and it adds a toolbar to your browser to configure its options; many are hot-key accessible. This application is beneficial to users of any level; just be sure to have some time on your hands to familiarize yourself with all it has to offer.

    "Trial...then...Error"

    September 6, 2007  |   By kharmahurts

    Version: AdsCleaner 4.3.52

    Cons

    I thought the old expression was "Trial and error", but the today's version, as demonstrated here, is more like "Trial...then error". The trial version works just enough to tease you to buy the program, but then after you buy the program, well, that's when the fun starts: No Ads are caught. Instead, you keep writing their "support" and, if they get back to you, they write things like "We see only one solution of the given problem: reinstall your operational system." Yep, that's actually what the seller said. It looks like the Ad companies are benefiting from this software because it takes screenshots of your activity (like Spyware). Don't make the mistake we made. Buyer beware!!
