@archer has it right. Use Firefox and get the AdBlock Plus plugin for it. Both are free downloads.

Sometimes popups are caused by spyware installed, so I would also advise download Spybot Search and Distroy and making sure your system is clean by letting that run and delete the infected files it finds.

I believe you have an adware on your computer

spybot is good and i used to use it but i have since found that malwarebytes is significantly better

Nothing beats running both of them, one after another. I used to run AdAware after Spybot searches and AdAware would find a few that Spybot did not.
