You have got spyware/adware on your computer that has caused all these popups.

Run a virus checker and one of the anti-spyware programmes that are about. Spybot or adaware or anything like that. I think you will have a scare when you find out just howm badly infected your computer will be be with all this junk.

The new windows XP service pack has a pop-up blocker as well

Sounds strange mate. Not sure what the problem was. You got any download managers installed at all?

Stop going to p0rn sites then :wink:

Download and run adaware from www.lavasoft.com to cleanup any adware you may have picked up.

Then as stated above, either install XP SP2 if you are running XP or the google toolbar popup blocker.

Also make sure your AV is up to date and run a full sweep.

What firewall are you running?
