    Check for spyware and viruses on your machine. Maybe even look into your Shared folder to see if anything is suspicious.

    I am going to check some folders and I am virus scanning My Documents. Luckily my parents are out.

    Edit : I checked my shared folder and there was some weird shit. So I deleted it and still some advertisements pop up.

    Hint:
    1.Make sure you download a file with the correct extension.(.exe is not a song, .mp3 is a song)
    2.32KB,126KB,851KB, these files could be bad. A song is usually 2mb-11mb

    In your Shared folder, check if there are any hidden files, unless you already had hidden files set visible.

    When I restarted nothing has happened yet. So I will wait and see what will happen.

    EDIT : Of course...ANOTHER MUTHA FUCKING POP-UP. I tired restarting and checking my shared folder. NOTHING.

    If you scanned and tried everything else, system restore.

    Before you do that, I had an issue with pop ups for a fair while..

    What ended up fixing it, was a registry cleaner..

    So, try the registry cleaner tool in CCleaner. Might help. And, clear your temp files while your at it. I doubt that'll help, but it could..
