Windows Popup stopper

  MKS 18:39 05 Nov 2008

Hi Everybody

My laptop runs win xp with all latest updates.I cannot access links from certain sites. You hear a sound and a quick flash on the screen, then back to the original page. They are not dead links as I can open them from PC. My first thought was windows popup. Have disabled this option from Tools/internet option/security/custom level and also have allowed scripting of explorer.

Any help will be appreciated

I'm presuming you are using IE7
check the setting in Internet Options > General (and near the bottom) Tabs, Settings >
Tabbed Browsing Settings (and near the bottom) Open links from other programs in: (and put green dot in your choice)
