          You're Windows 10, but what browser are you using? You may have an anti-popup option built into the browser, but if this is run-of-the-mill advertising and only on certain sites then you can add something like AdBlock or AdBlock Plus to the browser for added protection.

           

          If the popups are frequent and on many sites you may have acquired some Adware, which is usually just annoying but can be more serious (as with Superfish a while back) - run AdwCleaner (from bleepingcomputer.com) or Malwarebytes (free version) if that's the case.
