Editors' Review

+
Bundled adware spoils what is otherwise a powerful and comprehensive pop-up blocker. DashPopUpKiller is compatible with Internet Explorer, Netscape, and Opera and has the ability to prevent a third-party site from hijacking your home page. Unlike many competitors, this program successfully copes with banners and Flash ads as well as with standard pop-up ads. However, some may find its peculiar performance less than desirable, as the app displays ads for a few seconds before eliminating them. You can add URLs to block or allow both manually and with hot keys, to enable audible alerts, and to rid yourself of unwanted cookies. We also appreciated the log field that lists a summary of all quashed ads. Indeed, DashPopUpKiller sounds like an excellent tool until you consider the program installs unnecessary adware on your computer. Since this application boasts a rather complete feature set for its category, some users might be willing to make that trade-off, but many others will want to keep looking.

"DANGER!!!!!!!!!!!!!THIS IS ADWARE FOLKS!!!!!!!!!!!!"

October 22, 2006  |  By VisionMaster

 |  Version: DashPopUpKiller 1.0

Cons

I just downloaded this program, and according to an updated norton 2006 anti virus, it found that this program is adware exula...eZinstall.exe Ezula.dll wo.exe apev.exe....It has a medium risk impact, and keywords are targeted by advertizers. This adware also runs under the name TopText..It creates a whole list of registry keys, and associates them with commonly used keys, so you basically have to be a computer expert to get rid of them.

I have no idea why the experts a download.com gave this program 3 stars.

In one line, "DO NOT DOWNLOAD, NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE ELSE TELLS YOU"!!!!!

Summary

It is amazing. I tried this pop-up blocker and it did NOT let one pop-up through, except for maybe 2 or 3 with IE.I would definetly reccomend you to use this. it actually works, and believe me. I kno what I'm saying. I've been through about 25 pop-up blockers and this one is the best one that I have come across so far.
