I'm sure you've seen the countless fraudulent popup "killers" out there. To be honest, most of them are complete bullsnot. One very amazing company though, has a killer popup killer (so to speak).

Check it out. POW popup killer from AnalogX. It might be exactly what you're looking for.


Also, moving this thread to the Applications section.

sounds like your search tool should be a higher priority in this particular instance:?:
On that note; Google (http://www.google.com) - there is no substitute for general web searching.

In regards to your question, as you are looking for a resource-friendly utility, start with Analog X's POW! (http://www.analogx.com/contents/download/network/pow.htm)
Analog X is known for his clean code and great working utilities.
There are a lot of utilities that block pop-ups, but this is a great place to start, if for some reason you don't like this one; try Google, you'll find plenty more utilities there.

EDIT; well done Raven! beat me to the post big-time:D

MUHAHA.. beat ya Mr. C :D

Yes, a pointless post, to be sure. But I make so very few pointless posts so I'll splurge this time.

And for what my $0.02aus is worth I'll also have to back AnologX's POW! as I've been usin' it for almost 2yrs now even on lowly K6-2/3's. :thumb:

Just to add to this discussion I think PopupCop (http://www.popupcop.com) does a great job - I haven't seen a popup since I installed it. But it also does more - it also blocks animations, scripts, flash ads, etc. etc. Very customizable and seems to be 100% effective. Give it a try.

As a side note, if anyone sees ANY popups on TweakTown, please take a screenshot and email to camwilmot@tweaktown.com

I use Mozilla for browsing mainly for its built in pop-up killer..

Seriously though you can make your own pop-up killer just edit the hosts file on your box and point any servers that produce popup ads to as long as you aren't running a webserver on your PC it works..

several sites have a good database list to kill pop-ups. including kazaalite.tk
