Sudden increase in pop-ups - why?

Hi there.

I've noticed an increase in pop-ups recently and nothign has changed on this end. I'm running Chrome and have the setting "Do not allow any site to show pop-ups" ticked. I have my firewall and anti-spam on. So... any ideas?

Re: Sudden increase in pop-ups - why?

Some deets I forgot to add:

I'm running Chrome Version 29.0.1547.62 m, and Windows 7 SP 1 - 64 bit. I've noticed the pop-ups occur when I'm opening a new window, but I've never had the problem with these windows before. The pop-ups are visible (not black boxes like some have reported), and the site address appears in my History.

Also, if the site addresses for these pop-ups appear in the history, is it always the same site or different sites? An example URL might be helpful for investigating this.
