I tried much of what was talked about below to fix this same problem. This
is what worked for me. I have Ad-Aware on my manchine with the ad watch
turned on. I didn't realize that it also had a pop up blocker built into it
and that it was turned on. Once I turned off the pop up blocker in Ad-Aware
I was able to get pop ups again. So I would check all spyware removal,
virus, firewall, and utilities to see if they have a pop up blocker.

I'm wondering how it could be assumed that an 'ad watch' would not have a
pop-up blocker.
