Is there a way to block popups that appear even after the firefox window is closed?

more options

I use firefox as my principle browser, however, recently popups have started to appear on a regular basis, even when the browser is closed. Is there some way to stop this such as deleting temporary internet files etc.?

Any help would be appreciated!

P.S. I get the feeling that this isn't a settings issue, but rather was prompted by a website that I have visited.

Thanks for the reply, I'm guessing it's a spyware issue, as it has started opening IE based popups as well.

Install, update, and run these programs in this order. (Not all programs detect the same Malware.) They are all free for personal use, but some have limited functionality in the "free mode" - but those are features you really don't need to find and remove the problem that you have.
Note: If your Malware infection is bad enough and you are mis-directed to URL's other than what is posted, you may have to use a different PC to download these programs and use a USB stick to transfer them to the afflicted PC.
