Popups…? I'm not getting any popups. I'm suggesting you may have ad-ware on your computer. Perhaps you should Ad-Aware and scan your computer.

Yes, adware can make your computer do crazy things, including making ads appear at random times, even when you're offline. I once got adware back when TRSRockin's last hosting vendor started replacing pages with their fake "download this ActiveX control to proceed" screen that just gave you loads of assorted malware. I downloaded Spy Sweeper and it deleted everything. I beleive Spy Sweeper's free trial recently changed so that it doesn't actually remove malware, though. :(
