I have used a lot of pop-up stoppers, the most excellent one to date is Goggle toolbar, not only do you get pop-up stopping you get a great integrated search function in your browser, and more.

It's easy to use and configure and it wont annoy you in any way.

You will find it here http://toolbar.google.com/ 

Just make sure you dont use the extended version, if you do google will keep track of your surfing habbits (track's it by IP number).

You will get a choice to install both extended and normal version.

I use the google toolbar, and it stops about 98% of the popups for me. I'm pretty pleased with it myself.

You can also try Avant Browser, it's not really a browser, it's an overlay for IE, it also has a popup stopper, but can do much more => http://www.avantbrowser.com/

disabling messenger/scanning for spyware/pop-up blocker  should do the trick

If you want to change browser, you can try out Mozilla Firebird (currently version 0.7) I have been using it for awhile now and it's a fresh breeze when your used to IE, and of course it comes with built in pop-up stopper and integrated search... and much more.
