You didn’t mention browser you are using. Anyway according to my personal experience Mozilla Firefox is one of the best browsers I have ever seen. You can download its latest version from the link below:

http://www.filehippo.com/download_firefox/

Now in Mozilla Firefox you can easily block unwanted pop ups.

Click on the Tools option in the top menu bar.

Click options for preferences. The corresponding box will now open.

Click the Content icon.

Make sure the box next to 'Block Pop-up Windows' is checked.

Select the 'Exceptions' button and a box entitled 'Allowed Sites – Popups' will open. You can type in the web address of a certain site for which you want to allow popups.

Close the box and then close the options box by clicking on OK.
