Are internet tracking devices and pop-up ads bogging down your network? Internet Cleanup 3.0, from Aladdin Systems Inc. of Watsonville, Calif., automatically blocks all pop-up ads, web bugs, and banner ads. It also reportedly removes spyware, tracking devices, unwanted cookies, Active X controls, and more.
Internet Cleanup’s Browser Guard is tightly integrated with Internet Explorer, so it allows users to block out ads, web bugs, and cookies. You can schedule automatic cleanups at start-up or other scheduled times. “With Internet Cleanup, users don’t have to view annoying flashing ads,” said Pauline Shumake, Aladdin’s product manager.
Internet Cleanup works on Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000, and XP systems. The suggested retail price is $29.99, but educational pricing is as follows: a 10 to 49 user license is $18.25 per copy, a 50 to 99 user license is $15.25 per copy, and a 100 to 199 user license is $10.25 per copy.
