Pop This

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Though not the most straightforward utility, Pop This efficiently dispatches the most common pop-up windows. After installation, the program is so unobtrusive that it's hard to know whether it's working or not. The absence of a manual only makes things more perplexing, but eventually we found the program's controls hiding within Internet Explorer's Tools menu. Pop This only copes with the most frequently encountered pop-up windows, but it does the job thoroughly and without slowing down your PC. The interface leaves much to be desired--for instance, we couldn't immediately determine how to temporarily disable the utility for sites from which we wanted pop-up windows. A workaround is to add those sites to a whitelist. We'd recommend Pop This for those battling garden-variety pop-ups.
