Window Screens not opening - Pop ups unblocked!

I'm finding on different websites that when I click on a link e.g. BBC Sports Page - click on Live Cricket Audio link, that the Window for this link does not open.

There is NO problem with the web page, just my web browser. I have encountered this problem on other websites, and I don't have a fix for it.

Some additional info:
I'm using XP Home with SP2 and ALL updates loaded
I'm using IE Version 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519.
My Pop up Blocker (within SP2) is unblocked (unclicked).
I'm running Adaware SE Plus.

Please advise.

I should also add, that the new window flashes on my screen for less than a second, and then disappears. Very odd. Something in the browser attributes doesn't want the new window to remain open.

...>>>bump

Can anyone advise on this problem?

I managed to resolve the problem myself!!

I had a nosey inside Adaware SE Plus and discovered in the Tools section that I could disconnect Pop-up tracking...:-)

Now if only I had known that Adaware was a pop-up blocker!

Oy Weh!
This could be my problem. I've gone nearly spotty resetting everything else on my newly installed broadband, using Win 2000Pro. I'll try this tip.
hang about!
