    true, much like there are many ways around copy protection. however, it works fine for me. and when a new popup appears that the software doesn't catch, you can just add it to the list (the software works by catching the url).

    I love this thing!!!!

    There is a certain pleasure one gets when a popup appears and you use the utility to add it to the banned list.......seeing the window close and hearing the "door slam".....hee hee

    Actually, the weird thing about the software is that it detects every page you go to as a popup (or maybe it is just detecting the page opening, I haven't studied the software enough). One thing I have found though is that after you have downloaded their "banned" list, you need to save your list onto your hard drive, otherwise it can actually slow your system down while going to different websites (but I may also have had network issues as well at the time). And you need to go to preferences and check the Smart! detection and Safe Mode box.

    When surfing the web, don't you hate those damn pops ups that advertise everything from cameras, sex sites, to online casinos? Especially when all of a sudden the pop ups take over your computer and you find yourself closing dozens of browser windows, each of which opens other browser windows?

    Try the utility above. A friend from work told me about it and it is awesome (and free). You can start out by downloading a list of "banned" pop ups from their server, and then add your own as necessary. You can also selectively decide which pop ups are allowed and which are not, so you can keep the pop ups on U.G. active (after all, there is a difference between a pop up that you WANT to open, and pop ups that automatically open for you).
