I E 6 No pictures or information in redirect popups??

Since I installed Zone Alarm on my IE 6.0  I noticed that I cannot get any pictures or information in popups?? It may have been before Zone..just noticed now. I go to say Sony and look at a camara, I click on the picture to view more angles of that camara and the popup is blank? Does not load at all...Not white, No message.... Blank... seethrough ... just a frame??  

I go to camping sites..it says to click on the campsite to view map and more information...I get nothing in the pop up?  Just empty frame...

Never thought I would want popups...but these popups I must get back.

Please help...I uninstalled ZoneAlarm, but still no pop up pictures or information loading. What settings should be changed? Why don't they load. Thanks  Dondia

See if doing a Repair on IE 6 helps

1.Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Add/Remove Programs.

2.On the Install/Uninstall tab, click Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, click Add/Remove, click Repair the current installation of Internet Explorer, and then click OK.

Is this the version called ZoneAlarm Pro?  If so, ad blocking is one of its options, added on to the functions of the free ZoneAlarm.  You should be able to read the help documentation for ZoneAlarm Pro and find out to customize this ad blocking function.  I went to the following page, where there is an online .pdf documentation file, readable by Adobe Acrobat Reader, (I clicked on the link for Browse product "Help" files) and on page 121 of the documentation you will find instructions for customizing.  For instance, you can set an option so that the ad is still blocked, but if you place your mouse over the space containing the blocked ad, it will appear.

FYI: I am running Windows 98 Second Edition...I was using my ZoneAlarm Pro Purchased full Version. Still will not show window popups after full uninstall of Zone. No problem with ads. My problem is the windows that popup. These popups are more redirects such as a map or more pictures of a particular item I may be looking at. Never use Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Outlook Express. Dondia
In control panel, open internet options, click advanced tb, click the reset defaults button, apply, ok, test.

 "   javascript:openPopup('/usa/ca/sans/newsans1.html','ReserveAmerica',%20466,%20650)   "

Any ideas?  Thanks ...Diane

Still can't resolve the problem in IE6 but found a go around. I downloaded Netscape 7 to see if I got the same problems. Well, I don't...I  can finally view all the popups I couldn't with IE6, so I will use it when I come to something I can't open with IE. Had to give points to one tech so giving the points to Crazy One for the great tips, And thanks to everyone else who tried to help figure this still unsolved IE mystery out for me. Dondia
