Disabling the blocking of pop-ups from secured sites

By default Internet Explorer blocks the pop-ups because they are mostly used for irritating advertising purposes. For secured pages (e.g. the login to a bankaccount), this behavior is not wished. The URL of a secured page is preceded by HTTPS in stead of HTTP. The blocking of pop-ups for these HTTPS-pages can be disabled by changing the DWORD-value Allow HTTPS to 1 in the following registerkey:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\New Windows


About This Blog

The Windows Registry is a database which stores settings and options for Microsoft Windows operating systems. It contains normally information and settings for hardware, operating system software, most non-operating system software, and per-user settings. Registry is used to optimize the security, enhance the functionality, modify the functioning of any software OR settings and many more.

In this blog I have tried to collect all the tweaks and hacks available on various website. I have tested many of these hacks before posting but still I would suggest you to take backup of your registry before trying any of these tweaks and if anything goes wrong while trying these hacks I or this blog will not be held responsible.
