Editors' reviewThe program's title says it all. Another IE Popup Killer is yet another pop-up killer for the Internet Explorer browser. The installation is almost invisible. The program launches its pinwheel icon into the system tray after displaying a tiny selection of settings, most of which are disabled. The trial version lets you set the program to start with Windows, play a sound, or flash its icon when killing a pop-up. If you press the Ctrl key when you click a link, the program allows that window to come through. Still, the program is not as powerful as it could be, especially in the trial version. You have to register to change the sound or the hot key. The default medium-sensitivity, which you can't change until you register, lets through an awful lot of ads and blocks some legitimate pop-up windows. When the blocker encounters a barrage of pop-up windows, it freezes temporarily. Registered users may find the capabilities of Another IE Popup Killer sufficient, but the trial version leaves much to be desired.
Another IE Popup Killer blocks pop-up windows (windows that don't have a menu bar) in IE and makes a beep when removing one. Pop-ups will not be blocked if the Ctrl key is pressed. It's not a super-pop-up killer that works in either low-level Hook or Hostfile mode; it works in Windows-level mode, so it's very stable as well as useful for many users who don't need an ultimate pop-up remover. Version 2.0 includes optimized arithmetic logic and autostart with IE or with Windows options.
