As necessary as ads are for a website to stay funded banner, pop up and video advertisements are the biggest annoyance for the users. Nowadays ads have expanded from websites to desktop games, applications and even videos. While most ads such as the ones served on this website are fine (although we would like to reduce their number) many ads on different sites and apps can pose external threats and destroy user experience.
Thankfully with AdLock you can block all sorts of annoying ads including pop ups, text ads, banners, video ads. And yes, it will block those annoying YouTube ads that appear before and during the videos. This ad block for Windows works on all modern browsers so no matter if you use Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Edge you will be protected.
AdLock’s magic does not stop at web browsers though, as it can also protect your computer from intrusive advertisements found in applications like Skype, uTorrent, KMPlayer and more.
