Blocking Pop-Ups In Windows 7 | Internet Explorer 8 Settings To Block Pop-Up

Some web pages contain pop-ups. A pop-up is a subwindow that is displayed when you access a web page. Sometimes pop-ups appear on top of the browser window; other times they appear under the browser window. Because most pop-ups contain ads or are otherwise unwanted content, Internet Explorer blocks most types of pop-ups it recognizes by default in all security zones, except the Local Intranet zone. 

This  means Internet Explorer uses the Pop-up Blocker when you are browsing sites on the public Internet, trusted sites, and restricted sites, but does not use the Pop-up Blocker when you access sites on your local network.

By default, when a pop-up is blocked, Internet Explorer displays a message on the Information bar stating this. If you click the Information bar and select Temporarily Allow Pop-ups, Internet Explorer will allow pop-ups from the site until you navigate away from the page. Alternatively, if you click the Information bar and select Always Allow Pop-ups from This Site, Internet Explorer will configure the site as an Allowed Site, and all pop-ups for the site will then be displayed.

You can enable or disable pop-up blocking by completing the following steps:
  1. In Internet Explorer, click Tools→Internet Options. This displays the Internet Options dialog box.
  2. On the Privacy tab, select the Turn on Pop-up Blocker checkbox to enable the Popup Blocker, or clear the Turn on Pop-up Blocker checkbox to disable the Pop-up Blocker.
With pop-up blocking enabled, you can configure the way the Pop-up Blocker works by completing the following steps:
1. In Internet Explorer, click Tools→Internet Options. This displays the Internet Options
dialog box.
Figure: Deleting your browsing history

2. On the Privacy tab, select Settings under Pop-up Blocker. This displays the Popup Blocker Settings dialog box shown in screen shot below.
3. You can use these options to add or remove allowed sites:
Add: To allow a site’s pop-ups to be displayed, type the address of the site in the field provided, such as www.msn.com, and then click Add. This site is then permitted to use pop-ups regardless of Internet Explorer settings.
Remove: To remove a site that is currently allowed to display pop-ups, click the site address and then click Remove. 
Remove All: To remove all sites that are currently allowed to display pop-ups, click Remove All. When prompted to confirm the action, click Yes.
4. To stop playing a sound when a pop-up is blocked, clear “Play a sound when a pop-up is blocked.”
5. To stop displaying an information message (but this not advised) in the browser when a pop-up is blocked, clear “Show Information Bar when a pop-up is blocked.”
6. By default, most types of automatic pop-ups are blocked when the Pop-up Blocker is enabled. You can use the following options of the Blocking Level list to control the types of pop-ups that are blocked:
High: Block all pop-ups (Ctrl-Alt to override) With this setting, Internet Explorer tries to block all pop-ups. To temporarily override this setting, press Ctrl-Alt while clicking a link to open a page and its related pop-up.
Medium: Block most automatic pop-ups With this setting, Internet Explorer tries to block pop-ups most commonly used to display ads or other unwanted content. Some types of pop-ups are allowed. To override this setting temporarily, press Ctrl-Alt while clicking a link to open a page and its related pop-up.
Low: Allow pop-ups from secure sites With standard (HTTP) connections, Internet Explorer attempts to block popups most commonly used to display ads or other unwanted content. With secure (HTTPS) connections, Internet Explorer allows pop-ups.
7. Click Close and then click OK to save your settings.

It is imperative that you hire professionals to clean your
home entirely after it has damaged by a fire. They do not know how
to handle this unexpected crisis situation, at least until their Utah water damage service
provider arrives. If you have damage caused by any of these situations,
you can take immediate steps such as removing all upholstery items that are wet by either
placing them outside or aired out with a vacuum.
