Most popups are triggered by cookies or other small softwares downloaded through surfing. What you need is to rid your computer of spyware, useless register strings and temporary internet files. Download ad-aware and run an update. Disable your internet connection and run a custom scan with all "deepscan" boxes checked. After booting, repeat. Delete cookies & Temporary internet files in properties on IE.

Edit your HOSTS file. Then get a REALY browser. Firebird :p If you wanna keep IE, get the google toolbar. Panicware makes a good blocker too. You can also use one of those IE-Based alternate browsers. I recomend Slim Browser. Used it for a year befor Firebird.

Run Ad-aware if you have it :)
