Editors' Review

+
The 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.

"IE Popup Killer 2.0"

November 03, 2008  |  By ctDark

 |  Version: Another IE Popup Killer 2.0

Pros

Getting rid of 10 Characters.

Cons

Getting rid of 10 Characters.

Summary

This is a simple program with all the basics, great for the tiny download size, easy to use, and a okay popup blocker if you don't really want to download other files which are 1MB +
Even if your internet is so fast that it doesn't really matter if you download 1 Kb or 1 Mb, you should still consider this program for a temporary program (if you don't go on websites that have ads, make it into a long term choice.)

"I am not impressed"

July 21, 2005  |  By Laura

 |  Version: Another IE Popup Killer 2.0

Pros

Free

Cons

Not very effective and good because:

1) Many pop-ups simply slip through and still "pop up" :)

2) Even those pop-ups that are blocked keep flashing on the screen obstructing my browsing and obscuring main window of the browser

"Free - Effective - Simple to Use Simple to Remove"

November 24, 2004

 |  Version: Another IE Popup Killer 2.0

Summary

Simple to use, simple to remove if you decide you don't want it, and it's free. Just copy the icon into your user startup folder and your set. Hit CTRL while clicking on a link if you want to suspend the blocker - or right-click the icon in the systray and click suspend.
