Fran, you normally do not need anything but an adjustment to your browser settings. Try, in Internet Explorer:
- Tools (if you dont have the menu bar, tap ALT-key)
- Internet Options
- Privacy tab
- Check pop-up blocker...

In Firefox,
- Tools
- Options
- Content
- Block Pop-up Windows

If you still have pop-ups with these settings, you may have picked up an infection.


p.s. I might mention that there are a few sites that will not show information that you might want to see if their popups are blocked. So, you may need to modify the Exceptions to allow these sites to popup.
