Not without more specific info.

Where do you see the pop ups? Is it just when browsing the internet or when you're using other applications? What operating system? Have you done a malware scan?

mainly just when im on this site, i down loaded malaware bites, but it hasnt really helped, its operating on vista, to look at the screen now, there is a add on the left side of the page, one on the bottomand it keeps opening up new tabs, ant the thing is so slow its not funny, cheers

The ads are normal. To block those, use a program called AdBlock. I don't personally agree with it in general as ads help fund a lot of free websites, but I do think paid sites like Trademe shouldn't display adds.

As for tabs opening randomly, that's weird. Have you tried a different browser like Google Chrome or Firefox?

you've got some crap attached to the browser injecting ads - use this
