Default Is there an effective, free popup blocker?

I've used Adbock Plus for years, but it no longer is doing the job, since popups keep appearing all over some pages. I've checked the software, and it is still on, just doesn't seem to be blocking anything anymore. Does anyone know of a good popup blocker that is free and effective?

Probably not, nor a non free one either. What I see is the ads coming from within the program itself. I don't see how you can block those without blocking portions of the program.

If someone has an answer I'd love to hear it.
