    Hey Everyone

    I am having a bit of an issue with my windows XP Pro, moreso my Internet Explorer 6, and it is becoming quite the annoyance. Since I have finished putting together my computer (about a week) I have been having an issue that when I click on a link, such as a comments link on a movible type website, or a delete button, anything really that has to open another specially sized window, it immediately closes itself and the only way to open it is to right click and select open in new window. This is quite frusterating since I am trying to operate my own blog, I can't delete anything! I have Service Pack 2 if that helps any. Any adive would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!

    There has been a 'pop up blocker' added to IE 6 in SP2. You will find the settings for this on the 'Privacy' tab of the Internet Properties page. This may be causing your problem. HTH... if not post back.

    Ya, that doesn't work. I tried the pop up blocker as well as all the rest of that SP2 internet safety crap. Unfortunatly it is not the problem, which leads me to believe it is something more confusing and stupid than usual. Thanks for the help though.
