I actually need to see them for my job and this problem started about a week ago. I have an e-mail account and a notebook on which I rely heavily but they both keep getting blocked. I have Windows XP and turned off the pop-up blocker but it still happens.

I called MS technical support and they said that if I turned off the pop-up blocker then I should see the pop-ups, but it still happens.

Suggestions anyone?

Hit ctrl when you load the page where the pop ups are,click the link,hit ctrl.

I hope that helps. :)

Oh and hold ctrl for a little bit to give it time to load the annoying little buggers :)

Like a charm, thanks! :) You deserve the commission that would've gone to one of MS's technicians. Funny, I even did that right now to get the smiley.

I would like to know if you can tell me, why do you need to see them for work?

Also I think you can turn your pop up blocker back on and the hitting ctrl should still work :)

I don't know. Sounds like a pain to uninstall IE and then install something else. This sounds like a commercial.:goof:

Okay, I've installed it and I'm using it now. It really was pretty painless and I didn't have to use the control button to access my links at work.

Quick update: it's worth it to have both. I couldn't attach files to my e-mail using Firefox, but succeeded using IE.
