I'm trying to access a website, part of which needs a popup to be displayed.  The popup keeps being blocked.  I'm using IE5, Win 2000 and no popup blocker software I am aware of.  I have the Security level set to Medium and I placed the website in Trusted Sites to no avail.
Any ideas?

Are you getting some kind of message saying that the pop up is specifically blocked?

How are you connecting to the Internet?  It maybe if your on a network that you have a filter server set up a policy to stop certain pages from appearing?

It may also be that scripting has been disabled in the Internet Options in IE.  Tools-Internet Options-Advanced.  Make sure scripts are allowed to run.

Bosco1023 what is the message you are getting exactly?  Does the pop up work in other browsers?
