More info on the popup blocker in XP sp2
windows xp sp2 rc2:
Some interesting regedits in there...and more tweaks than I realized....
The various aspects of pop-up manager are controlled by values in the registry under HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Int ernet Explorer\New Windows. The registry values are all dword values, unless noted. Values are all either 0 or 1, unless noted.
PopupMgr - Whether the pop-up blocker feature is enabled or not. This is the checkbox on the privacy tab of the Internet Control Panel.
Filed under: Security
PlaySound - Whether or not a sound should be played when a pop-up is blocked. This sound is set in the Sound Control Panel.
ApplyToWebOC - Applications hosting the webbrowser control only get pop-up blocking if they opt in. This forces pop-up blocking on non-opted-in apps when true.
UseSecBand - Whether or not pop-up blocker notifications should appear in the Information Band.
AccUserInitOnClick - Turns off or on an app compat work-around for some Accessibility Aids. This is on by default.
Balloon - Set when the balloon notification has been shown. Not a very interesting value, listed here for completeness.
BlockHTMLDialogs - Whether or not to treat HTML dialogs as pop-ups.
UserInitTimeout - Number of ms in the timeout period when the UseTimerMethod value is set (see below).
