Sunbelt Utility Pops Pop-Ups
If pop-up ads have become the bane of your Web surfing experience, relief is here.If pop-up ads have become the bane of your Web surfing experience, relief is here, in the form of a utility from Sunbelt Software called, appropriately, IHatePopups. Installation and setup of IHatePopups, which shipped in March, were a breeze. Minutes after downloading the program from Sunbelts Web site, I was able to surf the Internet without having to close a litany of self-launching windows. The software runs in the Windows system tray and filters any Web browser that opens without user instruction.
While I chose to turn off the programs sounds, users can be alerted with their choice of sounds every time IHatePopups kills a pop-up.
