What kind of pop-ups? Regular ones are covered by browser settings usually assuming you are up to date with the latest version of browser, also some toolbars such as Google have that feature.
McAfee alerts can be controlled by opening SecurityCenter (double-click or right-click the taskbar icon).
Click Navigation (top right)
Click General Settings and Alerts (middle left)
Expand the sections by clicking on them and click Apply after changing whatever it is.
Being the novice I am to cyber-jargon ,I did not see the words "pop-up" anywhere in settings and alerts.
I am aware of the "pop-up" controls in IE8 however, an "MVP" at the MS forums thinks my problem is from some virus or security program interfeering with
my ability to acces certain links especially those that are supposed to open in a separate window.
