If you are referring to the Windows Pop-up Blocker, then open your web browser go to tools, > internet options > Privacy tab, untick "block pop ups".

Press man thanks but that didnt help would there be more pop up blockers on my computer, and if so where ?

If you have the Google toolbar, there is a popup blocker there also.

A lot of Pop-Up blockers temporary disable if you hold shift down while you open the Pop-Up.

Many firewalls - such as kerio - have pop-up blocking, too. Check your settings for web filtering.

If you're using IE, try switching to Firefox. It has a good pop-up blocker.

I am only having problems when i try and get into Lycos is there any other way of finding the pop up blocker so taht i can disable it

If you think that you might have a pop-up blocker running but you're not sure, you'll have to check out the features of all your internet-related software: firewall, AV, anti-spyware (if it has active scanning), plugins, Google toolbar and XP's SP2 pop-up blocker. A lot of candidates.

Oh, and Kate's right; Firefox is so efficient that I have never, ever had an unwanted pop-up.

Thanks to all i wil try all these tomorrow

Further to ade.h's point about Firefox, with which I fully concur, is that it gives you the opportunity whether to open the pop up or not; this also applies to the e-mail partner, Thunderbird.
