This is an early popup killer utility that has an extension loaded when you boot your Mac and it automatically closes the pop up windows that come up when you're surfing the web.

Pop-Up Zapper is a shareware application for Mac OS X that helps you by "zapping" away those annoying pop-up windows when you surf the web.
Pop-Up Zapper watches the work of your web browser and when it identifies a pop up window (or pop-under) it closes it just as you would, except a lot faster. Most of the time you see a window flash open and close in your screen, that is if you even notice it at all. You can look at Pop-Up Zapper's counter on its Dock icon to see that it is working. There are very few but valid reasons for a pop-up. Pop-Up Zapper tries to detect the unwanted ones and not just close any new window that opens up.
For registered users Pop-Up Zapper can also update its own data automatically and can notify you when the application has been updated with new features. A command key can be used to disable it anytime without having to bring it to the front.
