On Windows Vista whenever I try to enable the popup blocker in Tools->Options->Content, nothing happens. If I tick the popup blocker box and clicking OK, then go straight back into that screen via Tools->Options menu it is still unchecked.

I have never successfully been able to enable popup blocking.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to the Tools->Options menu, click on the Content tab.
2.If I tick the popup blocker box and clicking OK
3. Then go straight back into that screen via Tools->Options menu it is still unchecked.
Actual Results:  
Nothing, popups aren't blocked and when I go back to that item again, it hasn't been set.

Expected Results:  
Popup block should be enabled in the Tools->Options screen and operational.
