Block your ports with a decent firewall and shut down the Windows IM service.

WITH putting in new s/w:
Install Mozilla and use it's pop-up killer

WITHOUT putting in new s/w:
Disable JavaScript in your browser
(Yeah, that's a little draconian, but it works!)

I have also heard the Windows Messenger causes pop-ups also, I would disable that by doing a couple things. First I would go into Control Panel, Admin Tools, Services, and find Messenger and select Stop and then change it to disabled, Apply-OK. Then I would also remove it by going into Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, Add/Remove Windows Components, and uncheck the box by Windows Messenging And then say next till it is removed.

Hope this helps! Good Luck!
