Hi

We are having 300 window XP clients on our network. We recently migrated our DC from window 2008 to windows 2012.

Iam planning for migrating from windows xp to windows 7. I have now  installed a window 7 PC with all applications that was installed  on XP and started to test all the applications .If all the applications  work successfully on this windows 7 , later I am planning to capture a image of this PC to our image deployment server  and push this image to all the PCs.

We use a web based program at the moment which runs sucessfull in window XP.

https://hosted77.renlearn.com/139920/Public/RPM/Login/Login.aspx

When i launch this program on the newly built  Windows 7 PC.
On this website it I get an option to check the pre-requsites to run this program successfully.

When I click the "check software requirements"

It checks and says current browser: Internet explorer 9
                                                              Cookies enabled
                                                               Popup blocking

Popup are blocked , popup blocking can cause problems when students use renaissance
 Place software. You may need to disable popup blocking or allow pop-ups on your renaissance place site.

I dont know how this was done by my predecessors. When logged in as a student I can't see the menu bar on the windows 7 explorer  and the student user dont have an option to allow the pop-ups.

Please suggest how to sort this. Is there a way to  disable popup blocking /allow pop ups for this particular website through the GPO.

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks
