Editors' Review

For common pop-ups, FightAds is serviceable, if not necessarily full-service. The utility did a fine job of killing pop-ups in our test, but its database is too small (about 50 possible threats) to power a robust adware remover. Besides its lack of a browser toolbar, the interface is just what you'd expect, and you're notified when windows or other intrusions are blocked. We found that the program only works with Internet Explorer, despite its claim that it supports other browsers. FightAds doesn't hinder normal browsing, but it consumes a bit too much system memory. In addition to its primary function, the program also will clear your cookies, browsing history, and cached Web pages (though the manual doesn't say how often). We'd recommend FightAds first and foremost as a simple pop-up blocker for users facing garden-variety ads.
