There are a couple of types of popup.. There is also the Windows style Message box.. If you are not on a network, you can disable the "messenger" service from the Services section..
Hope it helps.

Most software packages only block the ones that attempt to open a new browser window.
For the MSN Messenger pop-ups, you need a different solution.
