Default Pop up blocker in service pack 2

Is there a way to disable this oh so wonderful part of service pack 2? I looked in the "security center", but did not see anything about pop up blocker. I disabled the firewall, but I need to be able to disable the pop up blocker as well.

And I could paint myself blue and speak backwards all day...Doesn't avoid the question.

For all the surfing I've done with SP2 so far, I have only encountered pop-ups when a sight has a multi-source pop-up presence (ie - two engines providing pop-ups). SP2 handles this very well, and I've noticed barely any difference between SP2's pop-up blocker successfulness and any other market-available pop-up blocker.
