AdFender is an effective program which blocks a load of different types of advertisements you may run into while browsing the web. While it may block advertisements which can be categorized as "good", it is also very effective at protecting yourself from ads which are intrusive and possibly malware vectors.
The program competes against many of the browser plugins available for Firefox, Internet Explorer and Chrome, but with AdFender, you're given protection regardless of which browser you're running.
AdFender generally operates in the background and offers functionality and settings through its interface which can be accessed from the system tray. Quick enable and quick disable is also possible in cases where you'd like to stop AdFender from interfering with certain web sites.
Overall, this program DOES disable many of the annoying flashy banners you're likely to find on many sites. It also doesn't use too many resources so it's great to have enabled if you're finding yourself with many popups and intrusive ads.Features and highlights
