    Sounds kinda cool...if anyone has used it what's your opinion?

    nop
    I use no pop up killer or add killer at all
    I consider that they use resouces unecesarily.
    Hey, but that is my opinion.
    Besides, most web sites that have pop-ups are tolerable. The web sites that are untolerable usually you shouldn't be there
    And if you always have lots of pop-ups then you have Spyware.
    I prefer to keep spyware away instead
    IMHO

    I've used and didn't like it much. Too many settings and things to play around with. I prefer the install and never think about again kinda of apps.

    Cool Thanks...I was just thinking that it's ability to "Scramble your IP and remove other unique identifiers to protect your privacy" kinda cool. I normally use Pop Up Stopper companion on IE and it works great so...I'll stick with it.

    BTW dehcbad25...I've begun using BBs sig host and they seem to be fine for a sig...www.forumsigs.com

    I'll again push for Norton Internet Security...I don't see pop-ups and I don't see ads and all I did was install it

    Yes it is a little resource intensive...but it's alright...

    That IP scrambler would be a good feature, for the little added security or anonymity. I guess with so many products available, its sort of the case of if the one you use works, just keep it.

    I use NIS with NAV for firewall and anti-virus duties, so simply enableing the ad-blocker and pop-up blocker is easy with little increase to the already large resource hog LOL
