JavaScript in Windows 7 allows several irritating pop-ups to come up on the screen unwantedly. Moreover along with these pop-ups many harmful scripts are also downloaded on the unprotected computer system and can harm sensitive data almost instantaneously. However there might be times when users are required to allow pop-ups on purpose because some educational and commercial sites offer some online forms and other promising features through pop-up or/and JavaScript itself. When this is the case users need to enable JavaScript in there Internet Explorers in order to allow these pop-ups so that additional features of the sites can be used. As a Windows 7 user if you want to enable JavaScript in Internet Explorer to allow several additional features (at your own risk of course) you need to follow the steps given as below:

  1. Logon to Windows 7 computer.

  2. Click on Start button and from the menu click on Control Panel.
