    I am not sure how many here play games online, not games such as Diablo 2 or MMo's but online games such as yahoo games or Pogo.com. well my gf wants me to play pool on pogo.com with her but there is an issue, when i enter the game room a notice comes up saying my pop-up blocker is is causing the game window not to come up, and they tell you to hold down either CTRL, Alt, or Shift when entering the game. well doesn't work for me no matter how many time i hold down the damn thing. I tried bother FireFox and IE and i use IE more.. Now under privacy the pop-up blocker is not checked at all. and i even have pogo.com allowed for sites. but nothing changes. now I use AVG for virus protection and my Firewall is ZoneAlarm basic(the free one). So if anyone can help me bypass the damn firewall or pop-up blocker without compromising my system too much i really would appreciate it.

    for pop ups, it should be hold down CTRL then click on your link. Let go when the pop up comes up.

    I had to do that for POGO games too.
