  • Pop Ups!!!!!! Ahhhhh

    Does ANYONE (I cant search for it cause its to short to go in search) know how to kill all those stupid pop ups, but not using a program that will kill alot of memory? <- Kill as in that...

    I'm sure you've seen the countless fraudulent popup "killers" out there. To be honest, most of them are complete bullsnot. One very amazing company though, has a killer popup killer (so to speak).

    Check it out. POW popup killer from AnalogX. It might be exactly what you're looking for.

    Also, moving this thread to the Applications section.

      sounds like your search tool should be a higher priority in this particular instance:?:
      On that note; Google - there is no substitute for general web searching.

      In regards to your question, as you are looking for a resource-friendly utility, start with Analog X's POW!
      Analog X is known for his clean code and great working utilities.
      There are a lot of utilities that block pop-ups, but this is a great place to start, if for some reason you don't like this one; try Google, you'll find plenty more utilities there.

      EDIT; well done Raven! beat me to the post big-time:D

        Yes, a pointless post, to be sure. But I make so very few pointless posts so I'll splurge this time.

            Just to add to this discussion I think PopupCop does a great job - I haven't seen a popup since I installed it. But it also does more - it also blocks animations, scripts, flash ads, etc. etc. Very customizable and seems to be 100% effective. Give it a try.

                  I use Mozilla for browsing mainly for its built in pop-up killer..

                  Seriously though you can make your own pop-up killer just edit the hosts file on your box and point any servers that produce popup ads to 127.0.0.1 as long as you aren't running a webserver on your PC it works..

                  several sites have a good database list to kill pop-ups. including kazaalite.tk
