This application is meant to deal with those annoying popup windows when you are browsing on the internet.
The program lets you add window titles to a list. And the next time it sees this window it kills it automatically. You can also asign a hotkey to the application, and when you press this hotkey it brings up the Add Window to banned list dialog.
How does it work?
Application works as follows: It continously (on a specified interval) scans all windows that are opened (by any program) and checks to see if there is a window title that matches one from the list. If it finds one the program, sends a close message to that window, which means it will be destroyed.
By default the application has already a huge list of 'well-known' popup windows. But of course advertisers constantly update their popup screens, so you have to add new windows yourself. This can be done in several ways: Just bring the application to the foreground, select Banned Windows, and choose Add. Now you can select the title from the list and click OK to add it to your Banned windows list.
Another (easier) way to select a title is to use the hotkey. Once the hotkey is activated, all you have to do is press this key (for instance F8) and the Add a window dialog will popup. The select the title, press OK and you're done!
