    You can try this tool

    Go to http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/
    Install it on your PC and run it. It'll clear up your computer from adware software you may have catched up recently and which cause those pop ups.

    Further make sure you download adware known databases from lavasoftusa.com site, it's similar to how antivirus software regulary download viruses databases to be able to fight with them.

    You could also use Google or Yahoo toolbars, both have pop blocks.
    if you use Norton software, there's even a way to block images/ads that are not pops...
    Firefox browser (and aol) now block automatically.

    Hope that helps!
