Another of the software applications from Webroot was a Popup Blocker which was designed to stop annoying ads that other pop-up blockers can’t, like mouse-over, delayed, and mass attack pop-up ads.
How It Works
Unlike other popup blockers , this program allows user-initiated and navigational pop-up windows you need to maximize your online experience.
If you are tired of being bombarded by intrusive pop-up ads that plague nearly every Internet user, Pop-Up Washer is the perfect addition to your online world.
Pop-Up Blocker would stop pop-ups at the Internet Explorer engine before they appeared, preventing screen flickers common to other pop-up blockers.
With one-click activation, you have the option to log blocked pop-ups.
Customize which sound you want to hear when the Popup blocker stops an ad from appearing.
Popup Blocker installed quickly and operated without getting in the way of your system resources, and offers easy-to-use features that will dramatically improve your online experience.
