Zone Alarm Pro and pop-up suppression

Using Mesh computer with Athlon chip, Windows XP (Home). When I added SP2, I had trouble with blocked downloads on Ebay and PC Advisor. I was being told that "You have no authority to see this page" amongst other things and there were lots of "X"s where items hadn't downloaded.. I therefore cancelled SP2 but this made no difference. I have found out by trial and error that the problem seems to be Zone Alarm Pro. When I disable this, everything returns to normal but when I reinstate it, I get the blocked items again.
Has anybody any idea whether there is a pop-up suppressor in Zone Alarm Pro (I can't find one) and if so, how do I turn it off so that my screens work again.

its in the Privacy link on the left and then the main tab, under the heading "Ad Blocking" click the custom button to see the options available.

Thanks. That seems to have solved my problem. Much obliged.
