Pop-ups? are you using a browser from 1999?
Install Firefox or Chrome and install the Adblock plus plugin and see the web without annoyances.

Also why do people use image hosts that aren't imgur.com?

I"m running Firefox but not Adblock. Call me crazy but I actually buy into the value-exchange that is "we'll give you content if you view a few ads".

I do have Flash disabled by default (because *nobody* can offer me enough value to enable it) and I do have pop-ups disabled in FF but that doesn't always stop annoying new windows being spawned by some crappy websites.

Not mine. Some-one else put it there, I just copied the linx.

I don't get a problem with FF just one pop-up page to jasmin or summat!

Most malware infections these days seem to come in via ads served up on some fairly mainstream sites. In the last year or so I have seen it come from Trademe, Metservice and TV3 in NZ as well as heard reports of it occuring on CNN.com ESPN.com etc. Basically online ads are the main vector currently used to infect desktop PCs this is as a result of either them being lax in their own security allowing unauthorised ads to be placed on the networks or they are not vetting the ads properly to begin with. Until such time as they clean up their industry then they aren't really fulfilling their part of the value exchange.
Adblockplus will let you to allow unobtrusive ads and even whitelist particular sites (Such as aardvark.co.nz).

Disconnect, HTTPS Everywhere, NoScript, RequestPolicy, Adblock Edge handle the browser security.

Eset Smart Security blankets a few other things.

Now I am also improving matters with a handy VPN link :D
