Some pop-ups can be very hard to block, so you will always see some. Start Tech Stuff ~ technically speaking some aren't pop-ups, but may be a hidden DIV which is made visible after a certain time period. ~ End Tech Stuff
If you still get a lot, then make sure you run a full system Virus Scan and AdWare scan. Also try switching to a different browser - see if there is a difference. If there is, then something may have infected the other browser via a Browser Help Object or some other way.
Do the pop-up windows contain any info to help identify where they come from? For example, while browsing Mumsnet, do you see any Pop-Ups?
