pop up blocker

My wife is studying for an ECDL as part of her job, she works for the National health service and the ECDL practice sheets are accessed by the NHS website. whilst on the NHS ECDL site for the first time whwn asked to click on a practice sheet a window opens saying that a popup has been blocked and wont then open the link. We run AVG proffesionall antivirus in conjunction with telewest blueyonder broadband basic antivirus PC Gaurd. We have turned off the pop up blocker on PC Gaurd to no avail. We run Windows XP and have had to recently format our PC loosing the hard drive but have everything running up to this point ok
