Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This excellent pop-up blocker wins our praise for its extensive features and reliable performance. Like many programs of this kind, Ultra Ad Killer sits in your system tray and allows access to its settings via a right click. As soon as we saw the tabbed interface, we realized this application is not just another pop-up blocker, although it has all the tools we usually expect, including a whitelist, a blacklist, a log, and both visual and audio notifications. However, it was this app's extra features that really made us take notice. Ultra Ad Killer can protect your online privacy by deleting the surfing history, cached files, and typed URLs, and it can clean out Windows system areas such as the Run menu and the Recycle Bin. We like that the tool lets you view pictures of cached files, and the cookie manager was yet another plus. After testing Ultra Ad Killer, it's clear that the program hasn't lost sight of its main job, as it did a fine job with regular and floating pop-ups, banners, and Flash ads. If you like, you can even block JavaScripts, JPEGs, and ActiveX components from loading. All told, this program is a fine Web-surfing partner that would make a nice pick for just about anyone.
