    IE 10 Pop-Ups

    Under Windows 7, I upgraded to IE10 from IE9. Now I'm getting all kinds of pop-ups even though I have the Pop Up Blocker turned on and set on High. Didn't have this on IE9. Any suggestions as to how I can fix this?

    Does that happen in all sites?

    It seems to happen mainly on nbcnews.com when I click on a link and open a new screen.

    If it happens just in some specific sites, it may be that the popup blocker is not working for some reason, in those sites.

    See if the information here helps: Pop up blocker is not working in Internet Explorer 10

    Thanks. I'll check out the link for some help. Just seems strange that it started when I updated to IE10. Should I go back to IE9 and, if so, how do I do that?

    I can't say that it will. I would try to solve the issue while keeping IE 10, since it offers better compatibility with web standards than IE 9, which is something that can be relevant for some websites.
