    I have a problem with one server where it thinks the pop-up block is on when
    it is actually not. I disable the pop-up blocker for all zones in group
    policy but I continue to receive messages from websites that pop-ups are
    disabled and that I need to enable them. I don't understand how this can be
    the case unless IE is doing something its not telling me about. Any ideas?

    PS IE ESC is disabled on this server. IE ESC was disabled before terminal
    services was installed.

    thanks
    Pete

    Doesn't that suggest that pop-up blocking is, in fact, disabled/turned off?

    No the website was complaining that popups themselves are disabled meaning a
    blocker was enabled somewhere.

    I reinstalled IE7 and it seems ok now. Go figure.

    thx
