Editors' review

Even though this pop-up ad blocker is nicely designed and easy to use, the trial version doesn't allow users enough time to fully test its capabilities.

Family PopUP Blocker has a clean, simple interface that anyone in the family can understand. Generally situated in the system tray, it emits a short beep when it detects and stops a pop-up ad. The program offers several options for customization. Users can choose to have the program run automatically upon startup, which saves a few clicks each time you turn on the computer. In the setting, users can specify certain sites to allow pop-ups to appear, as well as any to completely block. That said, the trial version of this software runs its own text ad and is limited to 10 minutes before users are prompted to purchase the full version. Unfortunately, in our tests, 10 minutes wasn't enough time to find a single pop-up in which to block, so we're unsure if it even works correctly.

Although the program is easy to set up, anyone looking to stop irritating pop-up ads may want to look elsewhere for a tool that gives the user ample time to test.
