Editors' Review

+
Considering all the competition on the market, we expect much more from this shareware application. Stop Pop Plus claims to block unwanted pop-up ads while browsing and even attemps to monitor malware and spyware. Yet in our tests, far too many pop-ups made it past its protection. Not only did the program allow pop-up windows while in its "high-protection" mode, it also allowed fly-in advertisements. The program's Dataminer Scanner, billed as an added barrier against malware and spyware, turned out to simply be a basic utility for inspecting cookies. On the positive side, Stop Pop Plus didn't slow our browser (it only works with Internet Explorer, unfortunately). We were able to view desired pop-ups without much problem, given the program's scrappy yet convenient interface. If you want to allow pop-ups from a certain Web site, Stop Pop Plus gives you the option in two mouse clicks directly in your browser window. We also discovered that the program takes up a lot of memory while running in the background--almost 7 MB. Overall, Stop Pop Plus stops some pop-ups, but it could be far more aggressive.
