What is NoPopup ?

NoPopup is an utility program which close automatically all non wished windows, publicity for almost of them.
NoPopup add a very simple toolbar to Internet Explorer from version 5.0.
NoPopup work under Windows 2000, XP.
It dont work properly under Windows 98. It have not been tested under 95, Me or NT.


What are the differences between NoPopup and concurrent programs ?

Almost conventional anti-popup programs catch text from title bar windows and compare text with a pre-established list which can be customized by adding non wished titles.
These applications are independent programs which are running as independent background tasks. These processes needs machine resources even when you don't need them i.e. when Internet Explorer is not required.
More, almost adds an icon the SysTray area witch is frequently overloaded.

NoPopup mode is highly different.
NoPopup run with Windows styles. The simple idea is the following : Almost popup windows have not the same style setting as the standard Internet Explorer window.
NoPopup is a COM component written as a DLL, incorporated in Internet Explorer which require resources only if Internet Explorer is running.
The resources requirements are dramatically reduced with a efficient Win32 C/C++ coding and no title data base requirement.
The toolbar can be easily hidden to preserve working space.
NoPopup is the only one program able to catch and close no visible windows which can download in the background on your computer, viruses, worms, trojans, and spywares.
NoPopup is the only one program able to catch and close no border and no frame windows, impossible to close unless an Crtl-Alt-Sup as below picture.

The devil style (0x16000000) without border nor frame (impossible to close without NoPopup because the closing button open in reality a new window !)
