I would recommend using the AdBlock extension for Google Chrome as I have had the most success out of it. It is better than AdBlock Plus (strange huh?).

 

As far as Internet Explorer, there is not much you can do as it does not allow extensions to be installed.

 

If you are still receiving pop ups after setting up AdBlock, then it is more than likely the web pages that you are visiting. Some websites embed a clear link that covers the entire web site and when you click on anything, it is opening up that link, causing the pop up. It's a tricky way of getting around Ad Blocking.
