Editors' review

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.
