Pop-ups are simply the bane of everyday surfing. Just as you?re browsing a site a window pops up full of ads. Though most mainstream sites have come to realise this there are still many that use this technology to advertise to you. Some are so pervasive that they open multiple new window until you?re forced to use Task Manager to close them. Thankfully there are ways to stop them such as Pop-Up Stopper Free Edition.
Simply Stop Pop-ups
Pop-Up Stopper Free Edition is an ad blocker tool which simply means that it?s designed specifically to prevent pop-up windows from appearing. It can detect when a web page wants to run this kind of script and stop it happening immediately. The software has a very easy to use interface which may seem a little drab at first but it?s just very utilitarian. This program runs in the system tray so you won?t see it unless you want to or you can have it right next to the clock for quick access. Right click and you get a menu with all the features and preferences such a list of blocked ads (Privacy Report) and a link for updates.
Works but For How Long?
Pop-Up Stopper Free Edition is great at solving this age-old problem and won?t slow your browser down. However newer programs can do the same job as a simple plug-in so compatibility for this program may not last forever.
