IE popup blocker from avast?
« on: December 22, 2005, 05:54:01 AM »
Hi, does Avast provide a popup blocker for web pages? I have turned off the IE popub blocker and some pages still cannot open useful pages. If yes, how could I disable the popup blocker?

Lucian.

No, avast does not have an anti pop-up feature.
Maybe the problem could be at WebShield and your configuration.
Which Windows do you have?
Which firewall are you using?
Any local proxy application is being used (like Proxomitron, for instance)?

The answer could be in your firewall options. If you use some firewall which has pop-up blocking features, check to see is it set to block those pop-ups. See how it looks in Kerio Firewall:

What about simple use some qualite browser ?

from IE6 based ones :

Maxthon http://www.maxthon.com  or Avant http://www.avantbrowser.com
both got inbuild popup blocker plus there exist additional plugin modules...

from Gecko based ones:

Mozilla, FireFox, Flock, Dr. Orca

even they got implemented some protection i suggest get some extending modules ...

that will solve 99% of problems ...

I've use McAfee Firewall for almost half a year until I switch to Zone Alarm and then Comodo.  McAfee Personal Firewall works really great, if you're using McAfee, stick with it.
The reason that I switch is because I didn't feel a certain bond (I know, it's weird) between me and the firewall.  I'm just strange like that.   ;D

All firewalls work really well with avast! in my point of view.

There are several free firewalls but my favorite is ZoneAlarm Free as I have used it for about 5 years with complete success. ZA Free also monitors/blocks all my computers ports in the original configuration. ZA Free works very well with Avast!    :)

Oh alright, there are many free firewalls on the internet.  You may try Zone Alarm which happens to be one of the easiest firewalls out there for configurations.  During your installation of Zone Alarm, you might get a pop-up that deals with the incompatibility issues with Webshield.  You can click No since you're using the free version which does not have the privacy controls. Just like what CharleyO had said, Zone Alarm (both free and Pro) works really well with avast!.   :)

hi all i just download kerio personal firewall and is nice im starting to use it the matter is that when installing a firewall it notifies about every single incoming and outgoing connection; for example i have a peer-to-peer program  :-\ and the firewall was blocking some incoming conections those conections were the downloads.

and my question is does kerios have a menu where i can choos what conections permit and conections deny?

if someone have an answer i'll be glade for it

cheers and have a nice rest of the year :) ;D
