I ran Zone Alarm in "Pro" mode for a very brief period and it was such a pain (kept forgetting settings) that I reverted to the basic version.

<< i am not using explorer, i use avant browser >>

Avant Browser is an Internet Explorer "enhancement" - it does actually run Internet Explorer in the background.

What sort of pop-ups? A bit more information would be helpful.

I would do a scan for adware using Ad-aware click here and Spybot click here

Download, update and run.
