ads not by this site

I just started recieving ads on my computer that are quite inappropriate. Underneath the ads in small print it says "ads not by this site". I was wondering if there's anyway of preventing these ads from popping up. My computer is an HP touchsmart with windows Vista.

If anyone can help me out, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
