Editors' Review

+
Though not the most straightforward utility, Pop This efficiently dispatches the most common pop-up windows. After installation, the program is so unobtrusive that it's hard to know whether it's working or not. The absence of a manual only makes things more perplexing, but eventually we found the program's controls hiding within Internet Explorer's Tools menu. Pop This only copes with the most frequently encountered pop-up windows, but it does the job thoroughly and without slowing down your PC. The interface leaves much to be desired--for instance, we couldn't immediately determine how to temporarily disable the utility for sites from which we wanted pop-up windows. A workaround is to add those sites to a whitelist. We'd recommend Pop This for those battling garden-variety pop-ups.

"Easy, no fuss."

September 08, 2004

 |  Version: Pop This 4.0

Summary

After using several other pop-up softwares, I went searching for something easy. I read anothers recommendation for Pop This, I have had it running for a while now. I really like it. It works quietly in the background. Once you download and install it, you will find it under "Tools" in the menu bar across the top of your window. I have had no problems with it using Windows XP home edition.
