i use IE 6 on a laptop running Windows XP. in the last week, something new in my system has been blocking pop-ups -- even ones I want like "live chat" options on my ISP website and there's no box or message i can find to let me override and temporarily allow the pop-ups. something (the same thing?) is event preventing me from jumping to a website from a link embedded in my outlook email.
i recently downloaded the latest versions of Ad Aware and SpyBot. it seems that it was right after that that this started.
before, IE would block pop-ups and I'd get the message right under the toolbar that told me and let me click to temporarily allow.
now, there's a very quick "pop up blocked" along the bottom and no way to override.
i'm posting here before uninstalling ad aware and spybot to see if that helps.
