Hi,

Try downloading a spyware/adware remover like Spybot or Adaware which are both free.

Or use something like Slimbrowser:
http://www.flashpeak.com/sbrowser/
Which is free, has the IE6 feel about it, but is tabbed, fast, can open multiple grouped windows on logging in\anytime, pop up killer etc etc.
I was using Firefox, but keep going back to Slimbrowser, which seems faster at start up, and at loading pages behind the one your on.
Anyway, I digress, go take a look.

See General: Essential Security software for links to the various tools listed and many more.

It sounds like you have spyware/malware infection causing pop-ups to appear randomly. If spybot (don't forget to try the new version 1.4 beta 2) or adaware does not work try CWshredder.

I also suggest you install the google toolbar which includes a pop-up blocker if your using Internet explorer.

It could also be the windows messenger service been used to spam you, you should check which services are running and disable "messenger service" if it has not all ready been done.
