Rejecting cookies has nothing to do with blocking popups. Check your cookies folder, if you've set cookies to be always rejected and verisign have still managed to set one, then I would be worried. There is, however, nothing you can do to block popups in IE without the use of 3rd party software. - seb -- seb potter - seb at poked.org http://poked.org - It's what you value.
