    Various web browsers like Internet Explorer, Netscape Communicator or Firefox, all these explorers have a option to turn on or turn off text windows called Pop ups. When we open different familiar and unfamiliar pages the pop up comes up to secure the risk posted by some of the website, it asks for the permission of user and to allow the trusted sites . But is some cases these pop ups are required by the windows and some information has been blocked are needs to be opened by the pop up open page.
    There is some documentation that is built in provided by the Windows XP Service Pack2. The built in pop up blocker also has the ability to specify certain web pages to allow pop ups. You can keep the pop up blocker turned on with this feature and can access the web page that requires pop ups.

    This document describes how to use the pop-up blocker in IE for Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2). With SP2 installed for Windows XP, IE has a built-in pop-up blocker. The built-in pop-up blocker also has the ability to let you specify certain web pages to allow pop-ups. This feature allows you to have the built-in pop-up blocker turned on and still be able to access web pages that require pop-ups (e.g. UH Web Mail).
    You can turn off or turn on the pop-up blocker by the following methods.
    Click Start, click run, type inetcpl.cpl, then type ok to open the Internet Properties dialog box. There is another method for opening Internet properties, after opening Internet Explorer, you can go to the Internet options, then go to tools menu to open dialog box. In the privacy tab there you will find the option to Pop up Blocker on and Pop up Blocker off, here you can choose the setting you want.
