Pop-Up Stopper Professional
Pop-Up Stopper Professional is a lightweight Windows application built specifically for helping you block annoying and stubborn popup windows that appear while surfing on the Internet. The tool provides support for AOL, Internet Explorer, Netscape, Opera, WMConnect, Firefox, and others.
This unobtrusive utility runs quietly in the system tray until called upon when it reveals several configuration settings to tinker with.
The parameters can be accessed by performing a right-click operation on the program’s icon from the system tray. Additionally, you may enable or disable the popup protection mode by double-clicking on its icon.
Pop-Up Stopper Professional gives you the possibility to play sound notifications when a popup is blocked and choose between several preset audio files (cartoon, comedy, generic sounds, war), as well as display visual notifications, such as flash the system tray icon, show popup bubble next to the system clock, and change the mouse cursor and adjust the length of time the cursor remains changed.
Whitelists and cleaning operations
You are also able to allow popups to run for certain domains by creating whitelists and permit secure sites to display ads.
Pop-Up Stopper Professional enables you to clean your Windows history, namely recent document history, searching and finding results, Recycle Bin, and clipboard. Additionally you may delete your Internet Explorer’s browsing history items, such as drop-down URL history data, browser history, cache, cookies, and Index.dat files.
Cookies that you do not want to delete can be excluded from the cleaning process. There is also support for a Privacy Report which helps you view various history items that are detected on your computer and identify the theft risk.
The program gives you the possibility to hold the “Ctrl” key for revealing any popup and run the utility at Windows startup. A great feature bundled in this utility enables you to automatically receive program’s updating information if new types of ads are blocked and new browsers are supported.
All in all, Pop-Up Stopper Professional proves to be a handy piece of software worth having when you need to block popup ads. The easy-to-configure features make it an ideal app for rookies and professionals alike.
