Most browsers (Firefox, chrome, etc.) come with ad/pop up blockers. I believe even a standard IE comes with a pop up blocker.

Which browser are you using and what site is it?

Then you would move to the Am I Infected? forum and ask for help there.

We don't know that's an infection yet, so let's first try by using a simple add on, and going ahead and scanning your PC with the anti virus of your choice.
