My suggestion.

Don't use Internet Explorer if you want to be safe.
Download Mozilla Firefox from this link
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/
Install it, and mark it as Default Browser.
You will be more safety and your browsing will be faster and better.

Firefox have to ask you about Pop-Up block.

Enjoy!

To tell you the truth since you helped me get my PC working very good , they say if it ain't broke don't fix it, I just really wanted to know if its OK to leave both blockers active? Let me think

In my opinion, I would really go for Firefox, it's much faster and secure. There are some great add-ons which also block ads for you.

Yes it is. They all do the same thing, block pop-ups and unwanted sites. But if you leave both on, you would need to handle both the pop-up blockers. Imagine having need to add links two times each time you want to block an ad.
