    Ok, if he was looking at porn, and the pop-ups are worse, now, you need to go to http://beam.to/spybotsd and get SpyBot Search and Destroy. Install the program, update it, and run it. I'm willing to bet there is a Gator-like program running on your computer that is popping up ads when it detects you looking at certain things.
    Also, hit you "search" button on the IE button bar, and make sure the search page is the MSN page. If it isn't do a google search for "removal" and the name of the page that does come up.
    You might want to also look into a program called "Popup Killer", do a google search for it.
