Windows XP - Service Pack 2 (SP2) - Popup Blocker


To test this site we went to , here there is a popup in the main page. The popup did not appear instead the message below appeared at the top left of the browser screen.


By clicking on the warning you get the following options 

  • Show Blocked Pop-up Window. 

  • Allow Pop-up Windows from This Site. 

  • Block Pop-up Windows. 

  • Pop-up Window Options.

 If the site is new or it is the first time you have been on it then you could view the popup's once by clicking on "Show blocked pop-up Windows", this means if you don't like what appears on the site you can then block them all using "Block Pop-up Windows" or allow them all by selecting "Allow Pop-up Windows from This Site". 

So why would you wish to allow popup's ? Well some sites would when you click on a link will open the page in a new window, if pop-up's are blocked then this cannot be done, alternatively you may like the site a grant the owner money by allowing his pop-up's to appear (Hint hint).

"Pop-up Window Options." allows you to edit the more advanced options of the pop-up manager including switching it off
