How to Disable Ad Blocker on Internet Explorer

by Kefa Olang

While the pop-up blocker in Internet Explorer can block annoying pop-up ads that may slow down your browser, you may need to disable it if you are unable to use certain Web pages or download applications from the Internet. When enabled, the pop-up blocker displays a message when pop-up ads are blocked. Disabling the pop-up blocker is a quick and simple process that takes minutes to complete.

Click the "Start" button and click "Internet Explorer" to launch your browser.

Click the "Tools" menu and select "Pop-up Blocker." A new sub-menu will launch.

Scroll down the new sub-menu and click "Turn off Pop-up Blocker" to disable the ad blocker.
