    Anyone that can help this computer challenged poster will be much appreciated! All of a sudden I can't access other posters links(news articles etc) and I don't know how to shut off my pop-up blocker, which I think is the problem. Any help? Thanks!

    What are you using for a pop up blocker first of all?

    A separate program?

    If you use IE you might just want to install the Google Toolbar that includes a popup blocker that's easilly turned on and off

    Most newer Pop up blockers have a button right in the toolbar

    I know other internet providers often provide a standalone pop up blocker - in which case there's probably a progam running in your system tray on the bottom right of your computer screen that you can right click on to access options

    Try holding CTRL as you click on a link that wants to open a new tab/window. THis is the default "bypass blocking" key for many pop-up blockers.

    Also, if you are useing IE then you can click on the top toolbar titled
    Tools

    Then, go to Pop Up Blocker - and then click disable pop up blocker.

    If you are useing mozilla... then good luck... I only know how to do the IE thing because my school runs on PC's as of now.
