How to Import and Export Internet Explorer Pop-up Blocker Settings

information   Information
By default, Internet Explorer displays pop-ups that appear as a result of you clicking a link or button. Pop-up Blocker, when turned on, blocks pop-ups that are displayed automatically (without you clicking a link or button).

This will show you how to import and export all of your personal Pop-up Blocker settings in Internet Explorer.
Note   Note
It can be handy to backup your Internet Explorer Pop-up Blocker settings by exporting them to a REG file so that you can use it to easily import your settings back, say after a clean install of Windows 7 or after resetting Internet Explorer.
