I have Windows XP. I've been challenged, but when I click on the challenge a message come on the bottom of my screen that says pop up blocked. Any idea how I get rid of the pop up blocker?

Click on "Tools" on your top should have "Pop-up blocker" on the drop-down menu there. Just follow the prompts!

But I always keep my pop-ups blocked and I've never gotten that message - is this something new?? Are showdowns now on pop-up windows??

As a shortcut, most popup blocker will let you load a window if you hold down "ctrl" and hit open.

Is it a third-party blocker? I have Windows XP with Internet Explorer and don't get that message. Maybe it's BECAUSE I use a third-party pop-up blocker (??)

I agree with Tuzilla! Holding down the control button while simultaneously clicking on the link should allow the window to pop up. Hold the key down for a few seconds!

Also, if using internet explorer, if it blocks a window, it will say up on top in the toolbar that a popup was blocked. If you go to it, open the drop down list, it will show the page that was blocked. You have the option then of setting it so anything from sploofus is allowed rather than blocked.

Thanks so much for the tips. When I tried to click on the link today, it worked and wasn't blocked. Unfortunately, I would have been better off if it were, since I totally missed the challenge question. At least it didn't cost me anything, and next time I'll hold down Control if I have the problem again. I now have a new tool in my limited computer knowledge arsenal. Thanks again!!!
