Windows XP - SP1 Firewall & Pop-Up Blocker

Guest

I'm running Windows XP - SP1 and after I performed a Windows Security Update
all of a sudden I now have a pop-up blocker. I cannot find the Firewall or
Pop-Up Blocker settings anywhere in Control Panel. The Blocker is keeping me
from web sites including this one. In Control Panel, I cannot even find the
"Switch to Category View" setting that is supposed to allow me to see the
Firewall & Blocker info. The question is how can I find out whether or not I
am using the MS firewall and also find the Blocker settings?

As a point, a few months ago I upgraded to XP SP2 and everything went to
heck in a handbasket. Slow performance & certain key programs of mine no
longer worked!
I had to uninstall XP SP2 and one consequence of that is that I no longer
have the "Help and Support" off of the START button! Any ideas on how I can
get it back?

Any help at all would be much appreciated.

Hi

The pop-up blocker is installed with SP2. Open Internet Explorer and click
on Tools>Pop-up blocker. You can adjust the settings that way.

For the Firewall, go to Control Panel>Security Center. Again, the settings
can be adjusted via that route.

Hi, all;
I did not ask this question, haven't seen it before, nor did I request to be
notified of replies to it. Yet I got this Hotmail message: "A Microsoft
Community member has responded to your question entitled "Windows XP - SP1
Firewall & Pop-Up Blocker" . Please read the response and indicate whether it

Any one know why I am getting unsolicited messages worded in this way? Any
one else experiencing the same thing?
Regards,
IanRoy.
