1) AnyLink Menu:

3) G'day, My issue is after I installed the script on a page to test it, when I opened the .html file in IE7 the pop up blocker triggered. This didn't happen when I viewed the demo on your site. How do I prevent the script setting IE's pop up blocker off?

Are you sure it wasn't about ActiveX Control?
And are you on a local server, or did you upload it to a server?

Thanks for the response mate!

After checking again it says "scripts or Active X controls". and I'm running it straight off my computer, not off a server.

This is a security feature of IE intended to help prevent untrusted javascript (and other things) from accidentally running locally where they would have much greater access to your system than when run from the internet. Just accept the content (click yes, OK, etc.). Once the page is live, this warning will no longer occur.

If you ever get this warning on a live page though, be very careful, chances are you should not accept the content. Unless the source is known to you to be trustworthy, it is a very risky thing to do.
