Those aren't popups. That content is part of the web page so it is not a
popup. CSS scripting is used to present content within the web page with
the ad content. It is you that interprets the display as a separate dialog
or window but that's not what is actually happening.
The only way to disable those pseudo-popups is to disable scripting;
however, permanently disabling scripting will result in the loss of much
functionality at a vast number of web sites. You probably don't want to
disable scripting in IE just because of a few rude sites. You could add the
rude sites to the Restricted Sites list which disables scripting for their
web pages. However, you might find that the rude site becomes unusable when
you disable scripting there. They probably use scripting for more than just
their fake popup content.
