Um... you mean like a pop-up blocker? I'm not sure if IE comes with one. I've heard the Google toolbar comes with one, so you could get that, or download Mozilla Firebird - much better browser than IE, and it has a pop-up blocker.

Hmm... I'm pretty sure it doesn't. It should though.

IE doesnt come with a native ad blocker. Personally, I dont use IE. I use Opera 7.21, and it comes with its own ad blocker that u can easily configure.
But as everyone pointed out there are several ad blocking utilities that u can use, including the pop-up blocker on the google toolbar. There's an ad blocker in the Pro edition of either Ad-aware or ZoneAlarm, and the free Outpost firewall also comes with an ad blocker.

There are several dedicated programs for this like AdSubtract. You can get a good list at this URL.
