Installed Windows XP Service Pack 2 and AOL toolbar pop-up blocker disappeared

The Microsoft Pop-up Blocker installed with Windows XP SP2 takes precedence over the AOL Toolbar Pop-up Blocker. If you want to use the AOL Toolbar Pop-up Blocker, you will need to turn off the Microsoft Internet Explorer Pop-up Blocker.

Turn Off the Microsoft Internet Explorer Pop-up Blocker

You can turn off the Microsoft Pop-up Blocker in either of two ways.

To turn off the Microsoft Pop-up Blocker from the Internet Explorer window:
In the upper right of the Internet Explorer window, click the Tools drop-down menu, select Pop-up Blocker, then click Turn Off Pop-up Blocker.

To turn off the Microsoft Pop-up Blocker from the Internet Options window:

1. On the Internet Explorer toolbar, click the Tools menu, then click Internet Options.

2. Click the Privacy tab.

3. In the Pop-up Blocker section, click the Block pop-ups box, or Turn on Pop-up Blocker box, to clear it.

4. Click the OK button.
