I advise you get Mozilla Firefox browser, which blocks pop-ups very effectively. It's like a million times better than IE, I just can't recommend it enough http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

I don't like Firefox personally, but there are other browsers that work fine too.

When you see a popup, hit Ctrl + F4 and it will close it.

Be careful though, that will close any active program.
