Pop-up confusion !

  greybeard 17:25 20 Nov 2006

Could someone describe the difference between pop-ups that are adverts from sponsors of a site, those that are largers versions of thumbnail pictures, and those that are anything else.

Before changing my av programme recently, the sponsor type adverts were only represented by a small box with a red cross in it. The thumbnails would open ok.

Now, with avast(free) and zonealarm installed instead of norton 2006 security centre, the thumbnails are blocked, but the sponsors adverts are not, just the reverse of what I want.

Any help gratefully received.

Thanks VoG, but I'm none the wiser.
Before I try any other method, I would feel more comfortable if I new what the difference was between pop-ups and banner ads, and why I now need to allow pop-ups in order to expand thumbnails, whereas before this was not the case.
