hi hubdean....
a lot will depend on which operating system you use ....if you can post back with a bit more info ,we can help you better .

Also, why not install Firefox as your default browser. Popups no more! click here

hubdean, you may mean windows messenger popups, not popups within IE.

If so you need to stop the windows messenger service.

Usual checks, spybot, adaware, etc... sounds like you might already be infected

What OS are you using? If we're talking web browser popups, then XP SP2 has a popup blocker. It's not 100% effective, but certainly worth it.
