    Start-->Run-->msconfig

    Go to the last tab abd disable from this point.

    Darth, the popup blocker he's referring to is added to Internet Explorer as part of service pack 2. It's not a startup program so you can't simply turn it off in msconfig.

    What exactly is your problem? What do you mean the pop-up blocker "pops up" (wouldn't that be an oxymoron? ) whenever you download something?

    Ah, that would explain it then. I haven't installed the new SP2 yet since I'm going to be doing a fresh install soon anyway. Seemed kinda redundant to me.

    Same here actually, but I've already had to set it up for other people.

    This is how to stop the popup blocking from stopping downloads.

    Goto Tools menu, Internet Options, Security tab, Internet Zone, Custom level, find the downloads section, look for "Automatic prompting for file downloads" and change its value to "enabled". this will stop the Information Bar from blocking automatic downloads.

    I found this post while Googling, because I'm having the same issue. Was anyone able to determine a fix? I haven't found anything in the MSKB regarding this, only the opposite problem.

    Just to clarify, I've turned the SP2 pop-up blocker off within Internet Options, but it still continues to block popups and display the notification bar. I've tried rebooting, and turning it on/off a number of times to no avail.

    If you turn off the popup blocker and then perform the step I mentioned above, it stops the information bar from blocking downloads, to stop the information bar blocking popups, you need to goto the same location, but you also want to alter the check box "allow script-iniated windows without size or position constraints" to enabled aswell, this stops the information bar blocking popups.

    You can also turn off the information bar, but I dont recommend that, as its used to display information that you used to get message boxes for, which you dont anymore.
