Editors' Review

+
This free pop-up blocker takes care of its business but omits a few common perks found in similar applications. Hitware Popup Killer Lite's feature set is rather anemic. You can choose to allow pop-ups from certain sites by manually adding their URLs to a whitelist, but you can't do so via a quick hot-key combination. Also, although the app can alert you to blocked ads by playing a sound or flashing in your taskbar, you won't find a log file for viewing a list of eliminated pop-ups. The program tackles just about all standard pop-ups with ease, although it can't put down Flash or banner ads. Still, since this app's performance is mostly good and it doesn't cost anything, we can see how it will be an attractive option to Web surfers who just need a pop-up blocker and nothing else.

I'm surprised it didn't get more feedback. It blocks the annoying windows pop-ups perfectly. I am very satisfied.

"Popup applications are antequated software!"

August 25, 2007  |  By Chainmail2006

 |  Version: Hitware Popup Killer Lite 3.1.1

Pros

A few years ago an effective popup killing application was a useful tool. Now days, any good web browser or toolbar for such come with built in popup blocking capabilities. Leaving these stand alone popup applications, unnecessary, antiquated programs for the majority of web surfers. This one thinks it can replace some firewall program functions which isn't true. It's just my opinion, but this program and other similar applications are a waste of time for the majority of home computer users..

nothing

Not only will it not stop the popups, but it changes your homepage and locks up your computer. This was a waste of my time!!!
