Those annoying ads
PopUp blocking software is getting more and more
popular these days. Many websites use popups to make money.
These popups are quite annoying, so many people install programs
that will block popups from opening. This seems like a great
WebCT is an example of a beneficial implementation
When you have popup blocking software installed, you may not
be able to access your quizzes, or class work.
What to do?
Many pop-up programs will let you temporarily
disable them by clicking on the System Tray Icon.(see images
to the right) You can right click on them to disable and
re-enable them later.
Some programs require that you remove them. Some
of these programs, like E-Anthology/ Stop-Sign, are often installed
by file sharing programs like Kaaza or Bear Share. You may want
to remove them anyway, since they are using your system resources.
Remove the programs:
If you want to remove one of these programs instead
of disabling it, you can remove it using Windows' Add/Remove
Program tool. Here's how.
- Click on the Start Button > Settings > Control Panels
> Add/Remove Programs
- Look for the name of the program installed (i.e. AdFilter)
- Select the program name and click Remove
- Follow any instructions you are given, then close the Control
Now you're ready to log back in to WebCT and
take that quiz, aren't you?
