In ie 8, there is a problem with popups opening and closing right away.
The solution is on tools/internet options and security
Add the site to trusted sites and set the level to med –low.
It would be nice to know exactly what the setting is that is freed up with this setting…
But I did get the popup window to do its job with these settings.
Two days ago, with no changes to my system, IE8's pop up blocker stopped working... I'm on Vista.
I did a series of checks and changes and pop ups still rear their annoying head.
This is what I did...
1. Full virus scan. Turned up nothing.
2. Uninstalled IE8, reverted to IE7. Pop ups still appared with IE7.
3. Chanaged all IE8 security setting to High. Pop ups still appeared.
4. Restored my PC to two days previous to when the pop ups started. Pop ups still appeared.
After doing all this, I'm still getting pop ups!
If anyone has a solution, that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
