There are two types of popups. One uses the 'messenger
    service' included with Windows 2000 and Windows XP. To
    rid yourself of these, install a firewall (see above).
    The second type of popup is triggered by web-pages you
    visit. These can be controlled by a popup stopper.
    You can get one free from http://www.panicware.com

from Frequently asked questions.
