Verify that you do not have any helper programs like google toolbar that can also assist with blocking popups. you may want to uninstall any helper programs because they can also slow your computer down.

Turn Off Pop-Up Blockers on My Computer
Surfing the Internet and constantly being bombarded with pop-up ads can be extremely annoying. For this reason, most computer users enable a pop-up blocker.
Occasionally, however, you run across a website that offers information that you need and it is blocked by the pop-up blocker.
When this happens you need to disable the pop-up blocker. You can disable the pop-up blocker for all websites or just for specific ones.

Launch Internet Explorer.
Click on the "Tools" drop-down menu.

Scroll down, click "Pop-up Blocker" and choose "Turn Off Pop-Up Blocker."
Turn off pop-ups for specific sites by completing steps 1 and 2.
Then, instead of choosing to turn off pop-ups, choose "Pop-Up Blocker Settings."
Add sites to block or remove sites from the list that are being blocked.
Turn Off Pop-Ups Blocker in Toolbars
Even though you may have your pop-ups turned off in Internet Explorer, if you have a toolbar installed on your computer it can still block pop-ups.
The most commonly installed toolbars are the Yahoo toolbar and Google toolbar.
Click on the drop-down menu next to the pop-up blocker button to disable the pop-up blocker in the Yahoo toolbar. Select "Disable pop-up blocker."
Click the "Options" button on the Google toolbar. In "Accessories," clear the box next to the pop-up blocker option.

How do I turn OFFG pop up blocker?


If this is an AOL supplied pop up blocker try the steps below.

Try looking at the top of your aol browser for something like tools or settings. Search inside them for the popup blocker. You can also just type popup blocker in aol's help to find out how to turn it off.

If this is an Internet Explorer pop up blocker, try the steps below:

Turn off the pop up blocker in the Internet Options in the control panel. Click Start/Control Panel/Internet Options or Start/Control Panel/Network and Sharing. Look for Internet Options. If you have the menu bar at the top of your browser just click Tools/Internet Options. When Internet Options opens click the Privacy tab and look down towards the bottom and remove the check mark from Turn On Popup Blocker the click Apply/OK.

If you have google toolbar at the top of your browser it has a pop up blocker also. So you can turn it off by clicking where it says Blocked, then it will allow popups from that website.

I can't read my email where I've been told that I need to unblock my pop-ups. How do I unblock my pop-ups?


It sounds very fishy that your email is requesting you to turn off your pop up blocker. Try scanning your computer with a free adware scanner. I recommend adaware or spybot s&d.
If that is not your problem, your pop up blocker is usually located in the tools section under add ons if your using firefox.
In internet explorer, its under tools and disable pop up blocker.

To change Pop-up Blocker settings
1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. On the Tools menu, point to Pop-up Blocker, and then click Pop-up Blocker Settings. 

=Internet Explorer Tools menu=

If you want to see pop-up windows from a specific Web site, type the address (or URL) of the site in the Address of Web site to allow box, and then click Add. 

=Pop-up Blocker Settings window=

Tip: To temporarily allow a site to display pop-ups, click the Information Bar when it notifies you that a pop-up has been blocked. Then click Temporarily Allow Pop-ups. 

To block pop-ups even if they are launched when you click a link or button on a Web site
1. Open Internet Explorer. 
2. On the Tools menu, point to Pop-up Blocker, and then click Pop-up Blocker Settings. 
3. Select the High setting in the box near the bottom of the dialog box. 

Note: If you want to see pop-ups that are blocked when you have this setting turned on, hold down the CTRL key while the window opens.

*Your vote is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Best regards
