1. Get rid of Internet Explorer, if you are using it.

2. Consider downloading and running HijackThis, and posting a log in the HijackThis Logs (Analyze) board.

If your IE is updated, it has a setting to block pop-ups.

Firefox has a setting to block pop-ups.

Download the beta of Microsoft AntiSpyware and give it a shot at your problems (it is free, for now).

There are all kinds of free pop-up stoppers out there. Check MajorGeeks and Download.com
