They're called pop-ups. . .

Download and install the Google toolbar. It blocks most of them.

Even better

Download and install Mozilla Firefox. Blocks popups like no other, AND as an added bonus, you get protection from all spyware that uses IE as the infestation route, which is to say probably better than 99% of all spyware, that you haven't already been infested with.

You can search these forums for tips on cleaning up spyware if you're interested.
