Hello friends. Of late, I get annoying pop-up commercials when I go online. My OS is Vista Home Basic. Can I stop this? How do I stop it if I can? Thanks.

Use Firefox with Adblock Plus add-on.

There are also free versions available for Chrome and IE.

Sorry, I forgot: I use IE9. I would appreciate a procedure for stopping these pop-ups. Thanks.
