On Cnet, the 7 reviews give StopAd an average of 4.5 stars out of five, citing similar benefits to the previous reviews but knocking it for slowing down and crashing some older computers. As assurance, their website guarantees 24/7 support for the program.

Getting into the specifics, to block ads on one's computer, StopAd blocks the URLs and HTML codes the ads are hailing from, while also examining the CSS codes to stay one step ahead of the algorithm. It also seems to stop cookies and trackers from watching the user's activity, used in ads, social media, and general websites. It also functions as a lite malware protection addon. It looks at lists of known malware links and filters them out of the user's browsing experience. It also helps the user avoid dangerous phishing sites.
