Check if you have unknowingly installed some program (usually bundled with another program)..or perhaps a browser addon. Do you see these pop ups with any other browser or just IE?

In IE 8 go to and turn on pop up blocker. Also click Manage add-ons and see if there's some suspicious addon installed somehow in there.

Popups while surfing to some sites ?
Or on all sites ?
Even for example a popup at http://www.google.com

I dont use the IE browser.
I use firefox and a plugin called Adblock.
That works great.

Upgrade to Firefox & install the Ad Block Plus, Flash Block and No Script add-ins ..

In addition to pop-ups, this will block 99% of adverts and all the multi-media cr*p (background music, in-your-face time wasting video clips etc). Just enable Scrip for your on-line banking ect (and NEVER for general web browsing) = this will improve you defense against web site viruses as well.

Good Afternoon,

What operating system is your system on?, If it is higher than Windows Vista, I would suggest updating your internet browser to IE11. This is more secure, aswell as this I would also suggest updating Windows.

to do this//

Start,Control panel, System and then go to Windows update. Then check for update. //

update to Internet Explorer 11 here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/inter...-languages
Other things I would suggest ( Run combofix), this will scan your whole system and look for malicious definitions and remove them - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/combofix/
MalwareBytes - http://www.malwarebytes.com (download the trial version)

Happy to help, message me if you need anything else!

Stay Secure, Stay Safe.

Maybe you didnt notice, it was a post from 2012/2013.
So at that time IE11 wasnt available.
