How to Find the Pop Up Blocker Under the Tools Menu

Included in your Internet Explorer browser is a pop-up blocker to help protect your computer. Without a pop-up blocker, pop-ups might overtake your browser or infect your computer with malicious viruses. When using Internet Explorer, it is important to have control over what websites are blocked by the pop-up blocker. By editing the settings in the Internet Explorer pop-up blocker, you can allow specific websites to display pop-ups. Find the pop-up blocker settings in the Tools menu in Internet Explorer.
