Popup Blocker

Recommended Posts

Hey,

I'm still a demo user, which is about to expire in about a week. My question is there a plugin or additional software that will coexist with Ad-Watch Live that will better block popups?

The older version just silently blocked them all and if it was a site you wanted to let popups work temporarily you would just turn off active monitoring, do your thing on the site, then turn it back on.

From what i've seen of the demo for pro, i'm still occasionally getting popups sneaking through instead of the silent killer that Ad-Watch used to be.

Thanks in advance,

-Drop

I remember plugins with the SE version, but don't remember a popup blocker. There aren't additional plugins now, just the various editions, and Pro has the most features. Some popups/popunders seem impossible to stop. You might try the NoScript extension if you use Firefox:

As visitor said, Firefox also has its own popup blocker, make sure that it is enabled. Go Tools -> Options -> Content

What i have found works better than NoScript is the [url="http://adblockplus.org/en/"]Adblock Plus[/url] add-on. Also since ads are a vector for malware it is a good idea to block all those ads from being downloaded. For those that get charged for the amount or are limited to a certain amount of bandwidth per month from their provider this can make a big difference in your monthly bill too.
