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.
