Makes it enjoyable to read my local paper again

All and I mean all of the annoying pop up ads and the ones that come sliding in side ways are gone now. I can really read the paper now. Thank you!

Made it possible to tolerate Newspaper Sites

This is a very effective program for viewing the newspapers that I subscribe to. It seems to be about 95% effective at blocking ads and doesn't get it wrong too often. I do notice that it blocks the positioned search items at the top of the Google lists. Generally it is not a problem because the same items appear in the non-positioned lists. My only recommendation to Adblock is to let the free version do more than 200 items. My newspaper burns through that number in just a few minutes and I almost didn't subscribe because I wasn't sure how well it would really work. Other sites are less intrusive and can be used longer. A fair test might be 400-500. Adblock is a very nice product!

just average; not up to expectation

Initial setup provided essentially no service.
Could not improve performance in a reasonable period of time.

Saved my use of a newspaper site

This product really helped me. In addition, I got a new computer and wanted to install and activate the pro version. The process was simple. I installed on new computer and was asked if I wanted to de-activate the 3 computers on which it was already installed. I did. Then I was able to activate it on the new computer and 2 others.

Clunky and flaky

Unfortunately when you pay for a product you expect results, this product is flaky in its quest to block ads sometimes it does sometimes it does not, one never knows if it is doing its job,there is no visual feedback to check. The personal filter tool also lacks feedback .the Fire Fox addblock plus add on is excelent and deeply customisable....and FREE. Simple Adblock is just that SIMPLE, sorry I bought it!

works great

This program works great. I had tried the 30 day evaluation but thought the price was too high. When it expired I tried a couple of others but was disappointed (I was primarily wanting to stop the Google ads that pop up on You Tube).

I then decided to go ahead and purchase. The price is lifetime and good on 3 computers so I took that into consideration and made the purchase. I'm quite pleased

Very nice but not perfect.

I actually tried the trial for 2 separate months. It worked great for several vid sites that had ads. Skipped them very cleanly with just a 1 sec flash. Cleaned up a lot of other sites, but some like ESPN wouldn't show video since the ads were more "embedded" than other sites like youtube or veoh. For $29 pretty good and yes simple to use.

An OK Product for IE9

I have installed and purchased Simple Adblock for IE9 and for the first day or so I was happy with it. However, things quickly fell apart when I noticed that certain websites I visit frequently (crackberry.com being one of them) don't format correctly with Simple Adblock running. Furthermore, IE9 seems to slow down all too often. Remove Simple Adblock and everything works as expected, so I can only conclude that Simple Adblock needs some work.

I sent an e-mail to the developer with this complaint several days ago but have yet to get a response. Ah well... it turns out that Tracking Protection Lists work better that this application and are free. Go figure. If I could get my money back, I would.

poor

I purchesed the $29.00 upgrade and Iam still getting adds at the ernd of the month. thought the upgrade would get tid of unwanted adds but it doesn't work at the end of the month. I won't be advising people to waste their month on this thing.

I don't think about it.

That's the thing. I don't see annoying ads. So I don't think about the ad blocker. Must be doing what it's supposed to do.

Without it I would not use IE

Was using another browser that was a little buggy and when they updated it they did not include lots of what I liked. IE works for me only because of Simple Adblock.

Ehhh... there's some irritating blindspots...

Certain full-screen ads will still run, and for that matter, some 15-30 second pre-video ads on youtube and other audio-visual media viewing sites.

Great program

Excellent program to block ads. Easy to purchase and set up, easy to use, and does the job well. Simple Adblock is on all my computers now!

Essential

The tool works well in IE and in fact is the only such blocker for IE, which is quite surprising. However it does not seem to block as much as adblock or adblock plus on Firefox although I think it may use the same filters. Also options for blocking are less than the FF equivalents.

I was also initially surpirsed to have to immediately pay for it rather than testing and then deciding so my opinion of the company is that they want the money first and deal with questions later, but they are not alone in this and I do realise that IE add ons are much more complicated than FF and they need to invest more in development.

However, back to the positive, this is an essential tool in avoiding bothersome and even malicious ads and links and it is a good start, although needs more work.

Reply from Simple Adblock

Thanks for the feedback.

As the name implies Simple Adblock tries to focus on simplicity. Simple Adblock should be easy to install and use, but the options for adblocking are not as advanced as other adblockers.

As for the effectiveness of Simple Adblock, then it uses the same filters as the FF equivalent (adblockplus).

There should be a 30 day trial, so you can try Simple Adblock without any adblock limitations. If that does not work for your, you are welcome to contact us, so we can look into it.

Best regards

Review by confirmed purchaser

Fantastic!

All those pop-ups have gone poof! My daughter recommended this to me because this was becoming a problem for her - too many hidden nasties, etc. Works great - I don't even know it's there. Thanks for a great product!
