Blocking pop-up windows is a snap in Internet Explorer. To configure pop-up blocking on your computer to get rid of those annoying ads, follow these steps:
1Start Internet Explorer and choose Tools→Internet Options.
You see the Internet Options dialog box fade into view.
2Click the Privacy tab.
Note the Turn On Pop-Up Blocker check box at the bottom of the tab. This is the control that turns pop-up blocking on and off; it’s turned on by default.
4In the top portion of the dialog box, enter any sites for which you want to allow pop-ups.
Believe it or not, you may want pop-ups to be permissible on some sites. For instance, if your bank uses pop-ups to prompt you for security information, you don’t want these pop-ups blocked.
5Select how you want the pop-up blocker to work by using the controls at the bottom of the dialog box.
Your settings are saved and implemented immediately. You can then close the Internet Options dialog box.
