Getting a nuisance pop-up on Windopws 7

Everytime I go to a website, a pop-up stating "We're popular! Everybody loves us! Don't you? Click ENABLE to get us back!" I really don't want this popping up all the time, so is there any way to delete it forever? I thought that I had got rid of it, and I believe it is a Serif product, but I am not sure.

tried cleaning the registry since removing the programs? ccleaner is a safe registy cleaner that may do the trick for you.

Which browser (Firefox, IE) are you using? have you set browser in Options to not allow popups? Do you have any Adblocker addons? You need to give us more details so that we can advise how to avoid getting it and similar again once you have cleaned with cCleaner.

I use SpywareBlaster (free program) and AdBlock Plus with Firefox Browser.

Yes, used Ccleaner never without it! Thanks

Windows I/E 9, and yes, Options NOT to allow pop-ups set. I have not got an application such as Addblocker - is that a freebie ?

Thank you both for your help

You can download fanboys adblock list from here and use that on IE9.

Just a matter of following the directions.Or wait and see if anyone can provide a better one.

Fanboys adblock list - that's the list I use with AdBlockPlus in Firefox. They are free so just go ahead and install the list in IE9.
