It sould like you might have some adware or spyware on your computer. Try downloading and using Ad-Aware. It's free and will root out any yucky stuff on your puter.

I use Mozilla Firefox and never get popups. What are you using Kelly? If you are using Firefox you can go to tools then options and set it to block pop ups.
