Editors' Review

+
This straight-ahead pop-up blocker lacks a few features we like to see, but since it's free and boasts fairly decent performance, we can still recommend it to users with simple needs. Just like its name, Pop-up Blocker has a main window that isn't very inspired, but it is easy to use and places the whitelists and blacklists in easily accessible locations. You also can temporarily allow pop-ups for certain sites via a hot-key combination. Though the application tallies the number of ads it kills, it doesn't keep detailed log files as many of its competitors do. The utility capably quashes most garden-variety pop-ups but can't deal with Flash, banner, or floating ads. It's nice that Pop-up Blocker notifies you with a sound effect, but we would prefer if the system tray icon also flashed when an ad was killed. This program is likely too simple for hard-core Web surfers, but casual and novice users might give it a try.

"RIGHT NOW I AM SCARED!"

December 31, 2006  |  By ALOEPECIA4407

 |  Version: Pop-up Blocker 1

Pros

DON'T KNOW YET.

Cons

I DOWNLOADED THIS PROGRAM ON AN OLDER COMPUTER I HAVE (THANK GOD). IT PROMPTED ME WITH THE "OPEN WITH" FEATURE. WASN'T SURE WHAT TO OPEN IT WITH. THEN I TRIED SEARCHING FOR THE PROGRAM WITH THE "FIND" FEATURE. NOTHING SHOWED UP. I AM AT A LOST. THEN I READ THE REVIEW AND NOW I AM SCARED TO TURN MY COMPUTER OFF AND BACK ON BECAUSE OF THE OTHER REVIEWS ON HERE. I HOPE THEY LET YOU WRITE 2 REVIEWS BECAUSE IF THIS MESSES UP MY COMPUTER I'D LIKE TO LET YOU KNOW AND I AM WONDERING HOW DID THEY GET SUCH A GOOD RATING. I DOWNLOADED THIS BECAUSE OF THE EDITORS REVIEWS IN THE FIRST PLACE.
