I currently use Pop up Cop, Can be found at www.popupcop.com
it's trial but I have keys for full version if you want to register it.
It runs in IE on the tool bar, haven't had a pop up in months since I got it

Google toolbar for IE. Its simple light weight works well.

super popup blocker 4.0 used to work really well for a long time. But just recently it just stopped opening up with IE and popups got right thru it. but popup cop is great.

I used to surf like an idiot with IE, and got lots of pop-ups.
Now I search smart with IE, and get a lot less pop-ups.

You could try 1-800-Sissors. Basically, they send you a pair of sissors, and you (stay with me now) cut, yes cut, your internet cord. Now you are guaranteed to get 100% reliable pop-up blocking. Of course, if you want to check your email, you'll need this other number: 1-975-2SPLICE

The Google toolbar has a good popup blocker. I used it when I still used IE 6, then I switched to the Opera browser and It had a built in blocker. You can get it here: http://toolbar.google.com/
