Multiple ad pop ups that dont go away by enabling "pop up blocker"
My browser opens with multiple ad pop ups that slow down my PC. Every site I've been to has said to go to tools, options, pop up blocker. The pop up blocker is on and has been on. It does not help.

Sounds to me like malware on your computer, that you may not be aware of.
You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:
- Microsoft Safety Scanner
- MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware
- TDSSKiller - AntiRootkit Utility
- Hitman Pro
- ESET Online Scanner
Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.
Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.
