This tool promises to put a stop to those pesky pop-up ads, but we never got it to work. Popup Purger doesn't offer much in terms of a user interface. It places a shortcut on your desktop and one in your taskbar.
Right-clicking on the taskbar shortcut brings up the settings menu. The publisher advises that you run a test through its Web site to make sure the blocker is working. We ran through the test and sure enough, the pop-ups were still there. No matter how often we tweaked the settings, the pop-ups still were there. A Help menu/FAQ is offered through the publishers Web site, and we followed the advice, but to no avail.
Stick to your current browser's pop-up blocker or find one that can actually get the job done. Popup Purger can't.
Popup Purger is an intelligent popup blocker for Microsoft Internet Explorer that can block annoying popup ads before they open. With its SmartBlock Engine, Popup Purger can block unsolicited popup ads while never interfere with your normal navigation. Popup Purger can block pop-up, pop-under and web page dialog popup ads. With Popup Purger's Boss Keys, you can hide, show or close all IE windows immediately. Popup Purger also has a built-in clock synchronizer that can keep your system clock always exact.
Version 3.1 build 310 may include unspecified updates, enhancements or bug fixes.
