Editors' Review

This pop-up blocker boasts all necessary features and demonstrates pleasing performance. Similar to most good programs of its kind, this one has both a black list for banning all ads from specific sites and a white list for doing the opposite. You also can permit pop-ups on the fly with the simple press of a hot key. PopupDummy sits in your system tray and emits a sound, blinks, and logs a URL whenever it beats down an ad. The variety of sounds in particular is rather impressive, ranging from the crack of a bullwhip to the slamming of a jail door. In our tests the program did a fine job of blocking most pop-ups and Flash ads, though it can't deal with banners. The cookie manager is a nice plus, but the 10-day trial is bit too chintzy in our book. Still, this utility is a better solution than many of the mediocre pop-up blockers flooding the market.

"Effective, reliable"

Takes care of most pop ups automatically.


Some pop-ups (10-20%) identify only as "Mozilla Firefox", so when you add them to black list, Pop Up Dummy blocks the ad, but you must go back and remove the entry, later, to use Firefox. I wish it identified all Pop ups properly.


I am very pleased with Pop Up Dummy. Lifetime subscription is $29.95. The only problem I have with it is minor: I tried to rename (in the subject line) a reply to an e-mail message in Outlook Express. When I hit "send", Pop Up Dummy tried to block it repeatedly. Now, when I send an e-mail, I must disable Pop Up Dummy till I have sent the e-mail. I'm sure this is just a Windows or registry issue, so I would definitely recommend Pop Up Dummy to anyone without a pop up blocker. If a pop up does get through, just highlight it's page info and send it to your black list. Bang. Instant justice.
