How do I view your answers?  The virus gets in the way when I click on views.

For windows 7, Click on start -> in the search bar at thr bottom of the start menu, type " INTERNET OPTIONS " -> choose the option from the list above -> A window called " Internet Properties" will open -> Choose the tab " Privacy " from the top -> You will find an option that says " Turn on pop up blocker" , check that option .

 

For windows 8 , go to the Tile screen-> Type " INTERNET OPTIONS " -> choose the option from the list above -> A window called " Internet Properties" will open -> Choose the tab " Privacy " from the top -> You will find an option that says " Turn on pop up blocker" , check that option .
