  • 3. Ad Annihilator

     

    Ad Annihilator is good--very good, in fact--at blocking pop-up ads, banner ads, Flash ads, and other distractions, including cookies. Once you've started blocking ads, the program's "suppression mechanism" (which sounds like an antibiotic) recognizes and kills similar banners and pop-up windows. If you identify a keyword or character string that often appears in ads, you can add it to the program's Web content filtering and blocking feature.

     

    The application also gives you options to block specific ads and pop-ups from the right-click menu in Internet Explorer.

     

    A warning, however: Unlike other, set-and-forget ad blockers, Ad Annihilator is a geeky tool. You'll need some spare time to configure it perfectly. Ad Annihilator works with any version of Windows, but only with Internet Explorer (5.0 and newer).

  • 5. Super Ad Blocker

     

    Super Ad Blocker tackles even the most annoying ads, including pop-ups, banners, and the distracting fly-in and slide-in types. It works nicely on all counts; if you're curious about how well it does, you can obtain detailed logs for all the blocked ads. Super Ad Blocker comes with a comprehensive configuration panel showing you its options for stopping ads, including those that annoy you while you're using instant messaging programs.

     

    The program is smart, too, in that it lets you stop images from animating and allow pop-ups from secure sites, such as Microsoft. For an extra level of security, Super Ad Blocker includes cookie- and history-cleaning tools, plus an antispyware scanner. Take the program for a spin in either Firefox or Internet Explorer.

  • 1. Ad Muncher

     

    Not happy with your ad-blocker? Try this one..

     
    Here's my secret weapon for blocking ads. Ad Muncher is one of the most effective (and simple-to-use) ad and pop-up blocker I've ever used. It blocks most banner, Flash, floating, and text ads.

     

    The program has other features, such as an anonymous proxy server to disguise yourself while surfing. When you try it, uninstall or disable your existing current ad and pop-up blocker.

     

    If a Web site doesn't work correctly, or if you want a site's pop-up to pop up, the fix is easy. Just right-click Ad Muncher's icon in the system tray, choose the My Filters tab, click New, cut and paste the address into the Keyword field, choose No Filtering in the Filter Category, and click Close. And if you have any trouble, right-click on the offending page to have the program send the developers a detailed report. Better yet, use Ad Muncher's live chat feature: Chances are good that you'll get answers directly from the guy who programmed Ad Muncher.

  • 2. PopUp Ad SmasheR

    Block ads, kill cookies, and protect your privacy with this IE add-on.

     

    PopUp Ad SmasheR has a weird name, but it stops most of the typical browsing annoyances in Internet Explorer. You can configure it to stop pop-up and pop-under ads, animated and floating ads, Flash ads, timer ads (which can prevent you from accessing a Web page), deceiving dialog box ads, and message box ads.

     

    In my tests it worked well, though it allowed a couple of static ads to slip through. Its "Smart Pop-Up" feature permitted some pop-ups to appear, too, until I tweaked the settings. The Ad Control feature gave me a way to allow, or block, specific pop-ups and ads--or to block everything on a site. Unfortunately, applying the rules, even through the wizard, is a little kludgy and takes multiple steps.

     

    The program also keeps browser helper objects from downloading, removes Web bugs, and automatically cleans your Temp folder. You can configure any of the settings to meet your security needs.

     

    If you find IE's security settings and pop-up stopper lacking, this program is worth a try.

  • 4. AdBarricade

     

    AdBarricade is a network-based ad-blocking service that supplies you with new DNS (Domain Name System) numbers; as a result, ads are blocked before they get near your PC. You have nothing to install, and the service works with every browser and operating system.

     

    To make the change, you'll need to reset your PC's DNS numbers; if you're running Windows XP, use AdBarricade's downloadable program to handle the task. (If other people are on your network and want to use AdBarricade, you'll have to make the change manually through the router.) Be sure to download AdBarricade's small autoremove tool, as well, just in case the new DNS settings prevent you from accessing the Internet.

     

    AdBarricade does a terrific job of killing banner ads, and a reasonable job of blocking most Flash ads. Unfortunately, in my tests the service had no effect on pop-ups, pop-unders, or fly-ins, so you'll still need to use a free pop-up blocker. You can give AdBarricade a workout for seven days; if you like its performance, it'll cost you $20 per year.

     

    If you're interested in speeding up your Internet connection, consider changing your PC's DNS settings
