    Follow The steps to block Pop up banners by changing settings in Internet Explorer.


    1) Go to TOOLS and then INTERNET OPTIONS.


    2) Click the SECURITY tab, move the slider up to HIGH and click APPLY.


    This applies the highest security settings to IE, which blocks EVERYTHING, including JavaScript, Applets, and so on that pop-ups are based upon.


    The catch is this… Some places like online banks and other web sites need these functions to work properly… So you’ll need to re-enable one important thing…


    1) Go to TOOLS and then INTERNET OPTIONS.


    2) Click the SECURITY tab, CUSTOM LEVEL, scroll down to SCRIPTING, and under ACTIVE SCRIPTING, select the ENABLE radio button.


    3) Click APPLY and you’re done!


    For other Browses Use Change Preferences and do the same settings.

    You can also block Pop-Ups by using any firewall by choosing firewall settings for pop ups.
