Do you mean Pop ups? Go to tools and turn on 'pop-up blocker' (on XP)

EDIT: oops, too slow

Yes, pop-up blocker should take care of it. It took care of that add on the right top corner of this forum for me.

Is it set on high? On high setting it will block all the pop-ups.

Use Zone Alarm firewall: http://www.zonelabs.com ;)
Privacy Tab, Ad blocking set to block pop-up/pop-under ads...

That's another way to do it.

If there still appearing even after adding more pop-up blockers, you may have an adware.

Do a scan with Ad-Aware and Spybot if there still appearing :)

Hi Titanium!! What site is secure to download these programs to stop seeing ads? I'm talking about the Ad-Aware or Spybot. I want a safe place to download it. Thanks for your help. Bye

Well these are designed to remove adware and spyware, these may be just normal pop ups your viewing so these may not solve the problem. But you should have these in your computer anyway :)

And don't forget to check for definition updates!

Besides antivirus and Firewall applications, every PC should have adware protection.

Download and Install Spybot Search & Destroy (http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html) , first check for updates then let it scan your system. Quarantaine everything it finds. Delete the found items you are sure of they are malware.

Download and Install Ad-AwareŽ SE Personal Edition (http://www.lavasoft.com/) , first check for updates then let it scan your system. Quarantaine everything it finds. Delete the found items you are sure of they are malware.

Download and Install SpywareBlaster (http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/). Check for updates, enable Full Protection. This program prevents malware to enter your PC in the first place.

Popups? I use Firefox but, Whenever I'm at my mothers house I use IE. I downloaded "Google Popup Toolbar". It's for IE and it works excellent. Some popups rarely come up but, mostly don't. :)

I'm using Maxthon. Tabbed browsing, pop-up/ad blocker integrated and in combination with ZoneAlarm I have no problems with pop-ups and ads at all.
