Windows XP SP2 pop up blocker

Will it block adsense?

Coming soon is the new Windows XP Service Pack 2
Will Adsense Ads get 'cleaned out'?

Adsense isn't supposed to be shown in a pop up - so i don't know how this applies.

I already have XP SP2 installed - and adsense shows just fine.

If AdSense is in a pop-up, that's a safe bet. But serving AdSense in pop-ups is not permitted acording to the AdSense Terms and Conditions.

Thanks for your replies,reassuring :-).
I was concerned about :
'Help protect your PC with Windows Firewall. Turned on by default the new, built-in Windows Firewall helps defend your PC against viruses and intruders who try to access your computer over the Internet.'

I remember Norton Firewall did cause some early problems displaying ads.

As said by PatrickDeese it's fine.

I added sp2 10 days ago and no problems, plus adsense isn't a pop up, so wouldn't be affected.
