Pop-Up No-No

CNET Editors' review

There's a lot to like about Pop-Up No-No, but there are plenty of flaws, too. The installation is fast, but to launch the program you have to register at the developer's site and get a free registration code through e-mail. Only after you type in the code does the program start working in your system tray. Pop-Up No-No can disable background sounds, GIF animations, and messenger service ads, and it can launch at start-up. The program claims to ban Flash ads, but that didn't work in our testing. It works with Internet Explorer as well as Netscape, Mozilla, and Opera. However, it opens pop-up windows before closing them. You can only access the program's features by right-clicking on the icon in the system tray, which makes you wonder why it creates a desktop icon. If you don't mind having to register, Pop-Up No-No might satisfy home users, especially those who use the Netscape browser.

    "5 stars: I can't recommend this product highly enough."

    August 2, 2006  |   By SaintlyMic

    Version: Pop-Up No-No 2.1

    Pros

    This program downloaded, installed, registered, and ran perfectly.

    It even allows you to double click the tray icon to disable or enable the popup feature.

    I'm not certain why other people gave this tool a bad rap!

    Too bad, because this tool works great!!!

    "Not bad but..."

    February 6, 2006  |   By FREEWAREBANDIT

    Version: Pop-Up No-No 2.1

    Pros

    Free registration, installed and un-installed cleanly. Not a bad program and should fit the needs of the average surfer. All in all, a valiant effort on the part of Elex Technologies.

    Cons

    As with many freeware products, you must register to use it. Not a deal-breaker, but a little annoying. It's not a pop-up "blocker", it's a pop-up "closer", allowing to pop-ups to execute first, then closing each subsiquent pop-up window. Again, not a deal-breaker. However, it only managed to catch about 65% of pop-ups I tested it with. While this should be just fine for the average user, I found it to be a bit disappointing. I know, "What do you expect for free, right?" Well, if you're picky like me, and you don't mind doing a little "hunting", you can find much better programs on which to spend your hard-earned freeware "dollar".

    "Beats the others hands-down!"

    March 30, 2005  |   By mrjones

    Version: Pop-Up No-No 2.1

    Pros

    I've been using popup blockers in my institutional setting for some time now. When we saw traces of the Google Toolbar showing signs of ineffectiveness (sorry, Google) I began to standardize on Popup No-No. Since then I've had no repeat incidents. Zero. Na-da.

    Every time I install this on a workstation, it's smooth as silk. The product does exactly what it claims to do and it does it well. My end users like being able to turn the blocker on and off with a quick double-click on the toolbar, and have learned the difference between GIF animations, flash popups, Messenger ads, etc., and are using this to great effectiveness. It's also one less thing cluttering up my browser toolbar!

    As for ease of use, it's great! Simple, low resource usage, shows you when you're on a site that is using hidden pages (aka pop-ups and pop-unders) by temporarily displaying the window with an accompanying optional sound, and a nifty feature called Quick Search that I find more and more people at my workplace using. This product is now an integral part of my security suite, and has saved me countless hours and (intrusion-detection product) dollars. I recommend it highly!

    "Awesome, effective, and FREE!"

    March 29, 2005  |   By Melody2

    Version: Pop-Up No-No 2.1

    Pros

    Pop-Up No-No is the best pop-up blocker ever! This little program is great! It works in all the browsers I use—IE, Opera, Netscape, Avant and Firefox.. And, it's really the only FREE one I've found. No crippleware, no requests to buy, no trial period, just use it...It even stops Flash. Anyone who thinks this software is corrupted obviously caught his disease from something else. I’ve used this little program for over a year now and haven’t attracted any bugs at all. It’s great, free, and easy to use. Pop-Up No-No does just what it says that it will do and it does it's job well. Contrary to what other reviewers have been saying, it is possible to bring up multiple windows of Internet Explorer. All you have to do is hold down CTR or SHIFT when opening a new window. I love it!
