Pop up killer with Avast? I think you mean popup killer for your browser ;D
Opera and some other browsers have a real good one build in. If you want to keep using IE (not advised due to the security problems)..... The google toolbar is good, and there are some other small utils like popup killer from xFX

Perosnally if you are using ie then id switch to myie2 or maxthon (both use the ie engine and have tabbed browsing) which have built in ad and pop up blockers and block 90% of popups , but are easy to allow ones that you want (for example some banking sites are popups).I found maxthon a little buggy on my old computer.Others with xp havent , so im using myie2.If you do switch browsers and at any time wish to uninstall ,remember to defaut back to ie or any broser that you are not uninstalling to avoid problems.

I also reccomend MyIE2 (Stable version) or Maxthon (same browser, but in beta version with a name change.)

Its a fantastic browser! with lots of features. It has a auto pop-up blocker & Content filter called "Ad Hunter"

Its a top-notch browser!  ;)

Check it out

All of the above advice is good. I would also recommend trying Firefox. It has a really good popup blocker, as well as the capability of adding the ad-block extension for blocking content, and banner ads. Plus, it is based on security as well.

Remember that Windows SP2 will bring a pop-up killer for IE...  8)

Your right,
But, it still doesn't make it a tabbed browser and at this point, I'm lost with out that ability.

Another browser that includes popup and ad blocking along with tabbed browsing is Avant Browser.

It used to be my primary browser it is now in second slot to Firefox, used when Firefox can't access some sites that are customised for IE (e.g. don't comply to wc3 standards) and use activeX

There is even an extension for Firefox that allows you to redirect any link in Firefox to be opened with IE...

That is certainly a handy extension, assuming you want to use IE.
