Editors' Review

+

This fine pop-up blocker won us over with its effective performance and unexpected extra features. Since Super Ad Blocker sits in your system tray and can be added to your Internet Explorer toolbar, it's convenient to access no matter what you're doing.

The application's logically organized main window is split into tabs for ad blocking, history cleaning, cookies, statistics, notification, and options. In our tests, the program did an excellent job of quashing all types of pop-ups, banner ads,Flash ads, and Google ads when using both Internet Explorer and Firefox. You can add allowed sites to a whitelist.

This program's antispyware tool performed quite well, stopping the vast majority of adware that tried to run on our system. The malware scanner also did a decent job. Beyond its prowess with pop-ups, Super Ad Blocker also lets you clear your Web-surfing and Windows histories. You also can view statistics on blocked-ad types and frequencies.

Users who need a high-performance pop-up blocker, spyware protection, a history cleaner, or all three certainly will benefit from Super Ad Blocker.

"Kills website revenues by 100%. "

January 11, 2008  |  By valipe81

 |  Version: Super Ad Blocker 4.4.1012

Cons

people earn little money from advertising on their sites. Large mass of it is already consumed by web-hosting companies. Every website providing content eyes on advertising to make little money. I think if there is no-advertising at all and every one blocks ads, there will be very few people who will be interested in providing content

"From Slow To Slower"

January 09, 2008  |  By noony_frogy

 |  Version: Super Ad Blocker 4.4.1012

Pros

It does in fact block all the ads.

Cons

The real problem with this program is that it is so busy scanning pages for ads, that the rest of the content of many (but not all) webpages is slowed up as the ad blocker scans and screens. I found that after some benchmark testing that cerain pages loaded FASTER, even with the large banner ads loading. The point of all this is to get webpages to load faster, and in that regard this product does not accomplish one of it's primary objectives.

"Works well - misses some flash - customer support ineffective"

January 02, 2008  |  By Z3Bimmer

 |  Version: Super Ad Blocker 4.4.1012

Pros

Does a good job blocking most ads.

Easy to set and forget

Support responsive when they feel they can help

Cons

Misses some flash ads

Causes seemingly random crashes in IE6 and IE7 when closing browser window

Customer support can be rude and condescending. Denies problems reported in other reviews. Slow when they don?t want to deal with an issue. Be prepared for them to scan your system with some secretive process.

"Frequent crashes, no customer support"

December 11, 2007  |  By mhalsan

 |  Version: Super Ad Blocker 4.4.1012

Pros

This software does block almost every form of advertising and popups.

Cons

Frequently crashes Explorer. Slows down computer, the task manager shows this software frequently consuming more than 50%. Computer very slow to start up- takes several minutes. Must be disabled to work with my online banking. Customer support ticket open for almost 3 months. They ran some sort of diagnostic program six weeks ago and have not responded since.

"Internet connection get's blocked"

December 04, 2007  |  By CCLYNN

 |  Version: Super Ad Blocker 4.4.1012

Pros

I loved it when i could actually play a online game at a site that has powerfull

advertising, flash ads and block them. These kind of ads slows or freezes your

online play. However these annoying ads and flash banner's were no match for

this program. easy to use.

Cons

The blocker would block my internet connection and many programs. Even if you

exit or allowed programs,or downloads most of the time the access remained

blocked. This program must be configured with firewall's to prevent blocking of

your program's. Still a great software, but trial period is to short.

"Highly effective, maybe too much, I don't know yet, since I'm new to it..."

November 18, 2007  |  By sly007

 |  Version: Super Ad Blocker 4.4.1012

Pros

When used the software for the first time, my first impression was: "Oh Wow! A clean website at last!" I hate all kind of advertisements even on TV, on radio and from my mailbox. That's probably why I record my TV shows before I watch them so I can skip the commercials by pressing the "skip 30 sec." button a few times or pause the TV show while the show broadcasting for at least 30 min. and then resume and skip all the commercials. Meanwhile, my pitbull is watching my mailbox 24/24 and I never answer the phone :0) A few days ago, I downloaded this software as a trial and found out that it does a very good job in blocking pop-ups, pop-ups under, etc.. Then I decided to purchase a license..

Cons

None that I experienced yet.

"Still going strong!"

November 06, 2007  |  By ingram_dani

 |  Version: Super Ad Blocker 4.4.1012

Pros

I have been using this ad blocker for a few years now. I recently upgraded to a laptop running Vista Home Premium. I did not have a chance to install the ad blocker on the new PC and very quickly found out that I missed the ad blocking so much that i had to redownload it and install it as soon as possible. I couldn't live without it.

Cons

No downside I can see, and I have been using it for a long time.
