How to close an unwanted window.

Question

I have looked through the website and have yet to find anything on this type of pop up ad... so here goes: How do you eliminate those "full screen" forced search engines/windows that pop up on your monitor? There is no way to minimize them or close them, and they "force" you to search. They force themselve on top of all of your other running programs. The only way i know of is to "ALT, CTRL, DEL" and close (shut down) that browser window (Internet explorer), but when you do that it closes all of your Browser windows (shuts down the whole IE program)... not just the unwanted, uncloseable seach pop up window. Is there no other way of getting rid of it without shutting the whole Internet Explorer program down??? Please Help! (Or at least tell me you know what i am talking about... most people i tell this to have no idea what i mean!) Thanks for your help!!!
