Pop up windows wont open

I was recently infected with the sasser virus which was causing random reboots and shut downs

Ive virus cleaned my PC and installed the MS security fix but now i have an annoying sub-problem

When I click on any link that would cause a pop up window to open, it tries but fails. I do have Pop-Up stopper installed but i disabled it and i still have the problem

Is there anything in the new MS fixes that means i have to adjust security settings or such like?

Thx in advance

Just to point out that ANY link from any webpage that would result in a new window opening is blocked

Each time there is 'Error on Page' message displayed on the bottom left if the IE window

Have you tried holding ctrl in before you press the link?
