What I suggest is that you go to Yahoo.com and download their pop up blocker I also tried many before which haven't worked, but the one from Yahoo is the best I even got the pop up ad your talking about and since I downloaded the Yahoo one I have not seen any pop ups since Plus it comes with some other cool features.
