did you run ad-aware or spybot? 
I got pop ups off of a friend's computer the other day - it was spyware. 
I didn't notice if you said you ran them or not -

I checked... it's disabled...sighhhh. They are just big adds. The first ones 
came up empty. big oblong box that says Internet Explorer ad.  NOW they are 
coming up with ads. EVERY time I open IE.  Is there somewhere ELSE to look? The 
first two, one was an add for software and the second I don't know..I closed 
it.

What do they say specifically?  Maybe they are popups from spammers using
the messenger service in Windows (not MSN Messenger).  This is a service
that allows administrators to send netsend messages in the form of popups to
any IP address.  If this is it, go to your administrative tools > services >
and turn off messenger service.  You don't need this for anything else and
it's just a big spam hole. Kat

That may be because they're coming =from= Earthlink!  Read your
terms of service (probably at the ISP's 'help' web site); they
likely say that the ISP is allowed to accept advertising and to show
it to you as it sees fit.  The difference is that it is coming from
them, not from individual sites you visit... and as such is not
subject to blocking!

Juno, which I've used since '98, has always had one or two pop-ups
appear whenever I get on the web!
