Hello my fellow Geekzoners…

My company is a predominantly Windows environment.

One of the many programs we use runs via Internet Explorer (SaaS) and it requires pop-up blockers to be disabled (pop-up enabled).

I’m trying to set up a Group Policy to disable pop-up – I have tried logging onto each workstation as administrator and disabling it but it keeps reverts back to the original setting.

I’ve also tried everything listed here but still no avail. The settings keeps reverting back to original…

Any suggestions please? Thanking you in anticipation…

probably need to download the IEAK internet explorer administration kit. should have instructions.

also be aware that there are a bunch of popup blockers that run independantly to IE. e.g. antivirus software, google and yahoo toolbars etc

Hi Regs thanks for the reply.

I've checked and there isn't any 3rd party software interfering with pop-ups.. its just that everytime I change the settings it reverts back to its original setting.

Will give IEAK a go thanks :)
