Unblocking Pop-ups on Windows XP, Service Pack 2

By Glenn Thorpe, Information Security Intern

Several University of North Texas online applications, such as EagleMail, WebCT, the portal, and Remedy, require pop-up windows to function properly.  Service Pack 2, "Microsoft's response to many of the security woes that have plagued the company's flagship operating system, Web browser, and e-mail client," has a built in pop-up blocker enabled by default after installation. Therefore to maintain functionality of these online applications, you will have to add a rule to allow all pop-ups from all UNT websites. 


To change Pop-up Blocker settings


Open Internet Explorer.


On the Tools menu, point to Pop-up Blocker, and then click Pop-up Blocker Settings.
