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.

"Doesn't work w/IE."

November 03, 2013  |  By bettyholt19499

 |  Version: Super Ad Blocker 4.6

Pros

None at all.

Cons

Trial period software that doesn't work with IE anyhow.
I also think it dumped other stuff on my system. I suddenly have some Firefox things, and I did not do it.

Wish I had looked at the reviews first.

"I tried to use 1/4 mark just because it did download"

August 07, 2013  |  By HEDBlegg

 |  Version: Super Ad Blocker 4.6

Pros

not any nix nothing no stars at all it blocks me from clicking on submit if I am doing a survey and now it wont let me click on add review, so I will go and un-install it then paste this back in GGGGGRRRRRRR

Cons

I have had more adds and popups since putting it on my computer,I usually recommend anything CNet has on it's site but this is disgusting I now have a new pop up called cloudfront and after that it is gibberish it pops up as a full page in the middle of me typing my email address or name to log into any site, I think it had to be hidden in the download.
Now to try and remove the horrible program

Summary

horrid don't even think of using it free much less paying for it! and now I cant click on the Add your review button to post this message so it blocks those really well

"Unimpressed"

August 30, 2012  |  By PatMySecret

 |  Version: Super Ad Blocker 4.6

Pros

Didn't discover any in the short time I used it.

Cons

Interfered with the pull-down menu updating.. a common website feature. Never saw an option to have it do what I really wanted it to do in point-and-click blocking.

Summary

Google, CNET, and others try to pump this. Makes you download fancified downloaders and god-knows-what on some sites. And it's basically unimpressive. Try the oldtime Naviscope.

"Keeps crashing my browser"

August 19, 2012  |  By stephen_s

 |  Version: Super Ad Blocker 4.6

Pros

Blocks ads properly

Cons

Keeps crashing my IE 9 on Windows 7

Summary

It does a good job blocking ads, but it keeps crashing my IE9 on my Windows 7 machine. It also seems to disable the open in new tab feature when I click on the mouse scroll button.

"grossly out of date"

April 24, 2012  |  By ^JB^

 |  Version: Super Ad Blocker 4.6

Pros

nice design and lots of features, but not current

Cons

has not been updated in several years and does not even support IE 8 or Windows 7. This should be removed from CNET. It is a joke. Uninstall left ALL kinds of traces in the system and windows registry. I used system restore to get rid of it.

Summary

Definitely would not recommend to anyone.

"Useless Ad Blocker"

March 11, 2012  |  By Knightbeat

 |  Version: Super Ad Blocker 4.6

Pros

There are no PROS. CNET's review of this software is so out of date.

Cons

It does not work with IE 9, Firefox, nor Chrome. It has not been updated for the last 3 years, if not more. The trail software you can download, version 4.6 does work with any of the fore mentions broswers. If you are a registered version you can download version 5 beta, which does not work with the fore mentioned either.

Summary

Save you money, and do not buy this app.

CNET. You need to get your reviews up to date. You are offering your readers false reviews for this software. I hate to think which other applications you offer reviews for which are just as out of date.

Updated on Oct 14, 2012

This app is no longer fit for purpose. It does not support IE 8, and not at all for IE 9. It has been version 4.6 trial for 4 plus years, and 5.0 beta has very been developed past beta, of which it does not work with the above mentioned browsers. How do I know. I am a registered user for this software, and with many other who have lifetime upgarde subscriptions nothing has happened to this software. It used to be the best out there, but they have left it to rot. Don't bother trying it, nor at this time buying it. It actually should be removed for this site.
