Well most popups are to do with spyware installed on your computer so if you havent already got some spyware cleaners/removers you should get them and that should help your problem. You will alwasy be unable to block a few popups but that is only on dodgey sites.
Here r some spyware removers. Download, update and run them a cuople times and that should help.

If you have XP just install service pack2 as this has a built-in pop up blocker. I havent got a pop-up since I have installed SP2

War, I have seen you mentioned this before but what is it exactly? Are you just referring to the XP SP2 pop up blocker or the MSN Toolbar another actual install?
