Pop-up blockers are software programs that stop unsolicited "pop-up" browser windows from launching automatically. These windows often feature advertisements that can be an annoyance to users trying to browse the Internet, however some features of the Webcast may make use of pop-up windows to deliver key functionality. Depending on the software progam you have installed you may be able to add the Web site URL to a list of permissible Web sites where pop-up windows are allowed.
It is common to have one or more pop-up blockers that you may be unaware of. Most pop-up blockers reside either in the system tray (lower right hand corner of your screen by the clock) or as a toolbar in Internet Explorer (at the top of your browser, go to "View" and then "Toolbars"). These can be disabled in their options or preferences menus. (Common toolbars such as Google and Yahoo Companion have built in pop up blockers).
Also, if you are unaware of any other pop-up blockers that are running on your computer, you may want to see if you have personal firewall software running, such as Norton's Internet Security or ZoneAlarm. If you have either of these, they will also block pop-up windows.
