Removing unwanted pop-ups

I have 2 new pop-up ads that run across the top of every page that I wish to get rid of ~ very annoying ~ the very tiny faint print below them says "ads not of this site" ~ tried to eliminate thru the site map/settings but no luck ~ thanks to anyone who can help me out!

Turn on your browser's pop up blocker. Ebay doesn't do pop ups. If your pop up blocker doesn't block them then you have malware on your computer.

You have picked up some malware or adware.   Run your protective software to get rid of them.
