Want to know how to stop yellow popups

Question

I keep getting these yellow popups with a message about new types of ads that are now targeting computers. It tells me to go to their website and buy a $24.95 program that is supposed to stop these new types of popups. I'm sure this is a scam but I am sick of these popups appearing all the time. Is there a way to stop them. I know it's not from AOL because I have been using there popup control but this is from an outside source.

One website is http://www.defeatmessenger.com/index2.html

Thanks for your help.
