    What popup blocker are you using? Have you tried holding the CTRL key while clicking links?

    There are pop up blockers then there are pop up blockers.
    The best is the built in one in Firefox or Opera. Both have settings to allow individual sites popups as many sites use popups for loggin in, paying bills etc.
    Also Firewall such as Zone Alarm also has such settings.
    Avoid all those advertised ones. So many are just disguised spyware.
    Using Firefox instead of IE is a good start.
