    Mozilla has a built in pop-up blocker

    but there are other choices if you must stick with IE (I assume that is what you are using)
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    PoW is king.

    Also try ad-aware, an app that will show you installed and running programs that do nothing other than spam you with popups.

    Find ad-aware with www.google.com

    Yep, POW for pop-ups - simple, small and works well. Highly configurable.

    Good point zeradul.
    Let's not forget Spybot Search & Destroy for that aspect of things.
