Pop Up Blocker automatically blocks spyware and adware pop-up ads. It also helps you choose which windows to close with the block list feature. This means the more you use Pop Up Blocker, the fewer pop-up ads you see. Pop Up Blocker blocks advertisement in the forms of inline videos, background sounds, JAVA applets, animated GIF files, Macromedia Flash movies, and video and flashing banner ads (ICQ, AOL Instant Messenger service, MSN Messenger), and all major video formats. Pop Up Blocker protects your home page setting from being forcibly hijacked by malicious Web sites and spyware, which modifies your default start page.
Version 6.0.6a blocks two new forms of spyware/adware pop-up ads.
