Let’s face it; no one likes pop-up advertisements Thankfully, Microsoft saw it in their heart to add a very effective pop-up blocker to the Service Pack 2 update Unfortunately, there is the occasional website that requires pop-ups to be viewed properly In such a case it is necessary to “train” the pop-up blocker to allow certain websites

To add a website to the “Allowed” list:

1 From Internet Explorer, click Tools.

2 Select Pop-Up Blocker.

3 Select Pop-up Blocker Settings.

4 When the Pop-up Blocker Settings dialog box appears, type in a website address underneath Address of Web site to allow Only enter the host name, not the full path, i.e www.datadoctors.com

5 Click the Add button.

6 Press Close to close the dialog box.

To remove a website from the “Allowed” list:
