Helpful Hints

Pop-up Blocker

Pop-up Blocker may prevent links within this site from opening. By default, Pop-up Blocker is turned on in Internet Explorer and set to the medium setting, which means it will block most automatic pop-ups. The settings for the pop-up blocker allow you to see pop-ups that are opened when you click a link or button on a Web site. Pop-up Blocker will also play a sound and show the Information Bar when a pop-up is blocked. If the blocked site message is displayed in the Information Bar "Pop-up blocked. To see this pop-up or additional options click here." this means Pop-up Blocker has blocked a pop-up window. You can turn Pop-up Blocker off or allow pop-ups temporarily by clicking the Information bar.
