Pop-ups blocked when blocker turned off

Recently my computer started blocking pop-ups that I want to receive. Some times there is a bar that will allow me to download the blocked file, but sometimes there is not. I added the pages to my trusted list, but it did not help. I went so far as to turn off pop-up blocker, but they are still blocked.
I am running XP with SP3.
I have IE 8.0.6001.18702
