This program is supposed to block pop-up windows and Flash ads, and that's exactly what RIP Killer Popup Blocker does. After a quick installation, it automatically opens an HTML help file telling you how the program works and where to find it on your computer. The program installs as a toolbar in Internet Explorer. It blocks pop-ups without even opening them. You can select a new WAV sound for blocked pop-ups, and the program also counts the number of pop-ups blocked and keeps a log. Moreover, it can clear your Internet cache, including temporary files and cookies. The Quick Set tool lets you decide which multimedia file types to block; you then can block and unblock all selected types with the click of a toolbar button. RIP Killer Popup Blocker suits home users who want a bit of privacy protection thrown in with their pop-up blockers.
