Ghostery (for Internet Explorer)
Full user review
Does what it is promised to do.
I had the horrible experience of trying to access my Netflix landing page, but because of Ghostery, it prevented my IE9 (on my Windows 7 laptop) from accessing my Netflix after I logged in. I disabled Ghostery from the Manage Add-Ons, but to no avail that disabling Ghostery work. I uninstalled Ghostery from the Uninstall Programs in Control Panel, in which, it did a partial unistall by removing the name from the Programs list, however, the Add-On was still listed in IE9. I did a complete reset of IE9, and rebooted, however, it was still in the Manage Add-ons. Finally, I would spend the next hour manually uninstalling the Ghostery program by removing the many keys of it in the Windows Registry, and booting into Safe Mode as Administrator to remove remaining files. Happily, all is well, and my laptop (System and IE9) is functional well, and I am able to access my Netflix page after login.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS CRAPWARE, BECAUSE ALONG WITH MY EXPERIENCE, I ENCOUNTERED READING ABOUT MANY OTHERS HAVING THE SAME ISSUES OF TRYING UNINSTALL GHOSTERY AND PAGE BLOCKS ON CERTAIN WEBSITES. GO TO GHOSTERY'S SUPPORT LINK AND YOU WILL SEE WHAT OTHERS ARE HAVING SIMILAR NEGATIVE EXPERIENCES. I STRONGLY DO NOT RECOMMEND INSTALLING THIS PROGRAM, UNTIL THEY DEBUGGED THIS PROGRAM COMPLETELY.
