Pop-Up Problem (but not what you think) Tags: Internet Explorer Apps Last response: November 2, 2005 4:24 PM in Applications Share Brett4u6 October 28, 2005 9:39:19 PM I can't get any pop-up windows to open, even ones I want. I get a message at the bottom left of Internet Explorer that says "pop-up window blocked". Holding the CTRL key while clicking the link does not work. IE's pop-up blocker is off. I've tried turning off both my firewall and virus software but no help. I thought I'd try reinstalling IE6 from Microsofts site, but I can't because the link opens as a pop-up. I'm running Windows XP Home SP2.

Just a couple WAGs, your ISP may block them somehow, or you have a rogue program/plug-in running. Mike. <font color=blue>Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend.
