Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go!
First, let's clean out some internet files. In Internet Explorer, click Tools menu, Internet Options. On the General tab, click Delete Cookies, then Delete Files (onthe next screen, check "Delete all offline content"). Reboot your computer and check your browser again. Are you still getting the "Internet needs to close" messages?
Next, the popups! Do you have antivirus and/or antispyware software installed? If not, here's a list of freeware options:

AntiVir - http://www.free-av.com/
Avast - http://www.avast.com...ast_4_home.html
AVG - http://free.grisoft.com/
BitDefender - http://www.bitdefender.com
ClamWin - http://www.clamwin.com/

The pop-ups are probably caused by spyware on your machine. If you don't have anti-spywares software, download and install one of the above.
If after scanning for viruses and spyware, your still having trouble with popups, please go to the malware
forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.
That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty (and you may not be) then post a hijackthis log in THE MALWARE FORUM
forum.(Posting HiJack This logs in any other forum other than the malware forum is forbidden. If you post an HJT log in any other forum, it will be removed and it will take you longer to get help, so please make sure you only post HJT logs in the malware forum)
