Go to Internet explorer tools menu and pop-up blockers > pop-up blocker settings and change the filter level to high.

Thanks Shabbir
That did work for a while and all of a sudden same thing.
But when you when you set the setting to high it will also block your wanted sites pop ups for example link this page from my mail.

It didn't work while posting the reply I have to stop 9 times due to pop ups

No what you do is click on the icon in the bottom right corner and click always allow popups from ... site and that way some sites like GMail, yahoomail ... some sites slowly will be added to your list which will be alowed with the popups and no other site which has popups not at the loading time but on some click or something else.
