Editors' Review

+

Designed to stop irritating Internet ads, Pop Up Blocker performs poorly. The interface is easy enough to comprehend, featuring clearly labeled buttons for enabling blocking, adding sites to an allow list, and dealing with Flash ads.

Unfortunately, in our tests, the application exhibited a rather frustrating performance, as it only stopped a few of the simplest pop-ups we threw its way and left Flash ads intact, even when we used the most stringent blocking scheme. The feature that limits the number of windows your computer can simultaneously open would be a nice touch if it didn't keep you from opening windows yourself.

Since tons of similar programs are on the market, we suggest most folks track down a more effective solution.

"Not pop up blocker, but pop up accumulator i found it"

February 19, 2014  |  By Domelo

 |  Version: Pop Up Blocker 6.0.6a

Pros

Nothing more to say, but It worked fine for less than a month.

Cons

After one month, it started slowing down my system and I reinstalled windows and software thrice. I am currently using adguard for the past 3 months and I found it way more better than this one :(

Summary

I'm sorry if it hurts the developer, but I regret upon installing it on my system. They must fix the said issues before marketing it.

"Its okay, for a free program"

December 28, 2010  |  By powderpuff2364

 |  Version: Pop Up Blocker 6.0.6a

Pros

It seems to block most of what I want blocked. The Icons are clear (easy to see), on my computer.

Cons

I wish that a set, of "average person" instructions came with this software. I am using "trial and error" to figure out what TO block, and what NOT TO block.

Summary

Once I figure out how to work the software, I am sure that I will be happy with the product. I just need to be able to "tell" it what I need it to do.

"so so"

April 28, 2007  |  By burger_A

 |  Version: Pop Up Blocker 6.0.6a

Pros

If you tell Pop up Blocker to block each popup individually, it blocks it

Cons

Pop up Blocker shows popups first and only then they can be blocked. As a result, I have to see all the popups before I block them. I think this blocker could be better if it blocked popups first on itself without showing them to me first.

"Only Ok"

March 15, 2007  |  By lynnfield

 |  Version: Pop Up Blocker 6.0.6a

Pros

It does what it says it does. Very effiecent doesn't bother you at all, and does not effect the speed of your browser. I recommened this to people who surf the web a lot without great virus protection.

Cons

Really I see this program unnessacery. Why would you pay $15 to buy a pop-up blocker when you can spend $20 to get Norton, McAfee, Panada, Zone Alert, Kaskpery, and many other great virus-protection that do come with a pop-up blocker. I think its a waste of money.
