HOW TO DISABLE COMMON POP-UP BLOCKERS

In order to take the courses on , you must disable any and all pop-up blocking software. Listed below are some of the more popular Pop-up Blocking software Packages, and the workarounds in order to disable them. There are many Pop-Up blocking software packages, so it is next to impossible to document the procedure for disabling each one. In general, most Pop-Up Blockers will install themselves either within the browser toolbar, or within the Windows Taskbar along the bottom right corner.

Close all open Internet Explorer windows. Then re-insert the course CD Rom. It will automatically open a new Internet Explorer window. Then follow these instructions.

(If the CD Rom does not autorun, click on the "My Computer" icon on the desktop, double click the drive that you placed the CD in and then double click the file autorun.exe.)
