POP UPS ?????

I'm sure its been asked before?

Pop ups. how do they get on to a PC.

My sons get then on theirs at home and recently I have got them on one of our workstations at work.
We went braodband a couple of weeks back and when I was off for a day pop ups started appearing on one of the workstations.
I know its my son who works for me who is the culprit.
What I need to know is how do I stop them and how do they get on in the first place.

I don't get any on mine at home, which is also broadband.

I just don't want the integrity of my business system compromised in any way.

Many thanks

Will it fix it if all else fails.
