The best way that I've found to keep from getting pop-ups like crazy... is to back up anything you want to keep on your computer (things that can't be re-installed, ie: photos, some documents... things like that) and format your entire drive... then, when re-installing windows, partition the drive into two parts, the first partition, C:\ around 10 gigabytes, and the second partition with the rest of the space... keep only your Windows installation and other system installations (like AIM or Yahoo Messenger) on the C drive as well... then keep whatever else you want (games, photos, music, etc.) on the other drive... whenever your computer becomes too cluttered, you can re-format the C drive and keep the other drive full of things... it only takes about a half hour to format the C drive and GUARANTEES that you get rid of all of the spyware crap... it'll make your computer run like it did when you first bought it ^_^ Secondly, don't go to websites that are shady enough to have spyware downloads on the sites (ahem, like pr0n sites)... you really only get those things from sites like that anyway... you could get a pop-up blocking browser, also... I recommend Avant Browser (or FireFox... lots of people swear by it... but I like my Avant more ^_^) It might sound kind of difficult to format and all that... but if you find somebody who knows what they're doing (preferably a friend... and not an overcharging computer store) it's not too difficult... By keeping my drives separated and able to be re-formatted, using pop-up blocking browsers, and not going to shady pr0n sites... you can basically eliminate spyware on your computer ^_^ *NOTE* This won't work if you have a Dell/HP/Compaq etc. store-bought computer... they partition the drives themselves and make it a hassle to do it this way... Oh, and you haven't suffered "a virus attack" that's just silly ^_^

It sounds like perhaps you haven't sufficient security on your computer and/or you may have viruses on there which are causing the popups. I suggest two strategies; run through a cleaning guide to make sure the computer is clear of problems, and then also installing appropriate protective programs.
Install programs like Spybot Search and Destroy, My Wot and a net nanny kind of program (filtering program) which a lot of national and/or state governments offer for free on their websites. Also, Firefox with NoScript stops some codes from being able to run, which might be infecting your computer or allowing inappropriate pop-ups. And adding AdBlock keeps a lot of risque ads from appearing.
Spybot and similar programs should be allowed to set all the security in place that they can - they will add a whole bunch of web sites to a blocked list.
http://spybot.com (This link will redirect you to Safer Networking, who are the people who make Spybot - avoid using other links that have spybot in the address because there are quite a few fake sites pushing dangerous Spybot counterfeits.)
My Wot puts coloured circles beside links in searches and emails to warn you about the security and appropriateness of a site for children. It also forces you to respond to a security alert screen if you click on a link that takes you to a site that WOT has listed as dangerous.
Here are some useful links to help you:
If you think the computer might need cleaning of viruses:
If you want to check your computer is as safe from attack as possible, since a successful attack is one way that computers can be fed **** site pop ups:
Firefox (install it first and then visit the pages for addons and click on "Add to Firefox): http://getfirefox.com
NoScript addon: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/722
My WOT addon: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/345...
(My WOT can be added to Internet Explorer too - choose to Run if given that choice and if not, download it and then try Open or Run or double-click on the downloaded file to install it: http://www.mywot.com/en/download/ie )
AdBlock Plus addon: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/1865
All the links I have given you are safe and reputable.
