With my current security I cannot block pop-up ads from disrupting my screen and not allowing me to work with my computer? How can I stop this from happening?

First of all, download and install the free versions of MBAM and SUPERAntiSpyware on the links below.
When installed, run full scans with both these utilities and delete/quarantine anything found.
If the problem still persists, try the following:
If you are using Internet Explorer, close any Internet Explorer windows that may be open, then try the following.
Open windows Control Panel, open Internet Options, click the Privacy tab, place a tick in the box next to 'Turn on Pop-up Blocker', then click Apply to save the change - sites that you want to allow pop-ups for can be added to the list of Allowed Sites by clicking the Settings button, adding the web address and then clicking the Add button.
