Spyware, adware, popups...>>>>

I know that recently there was a thread dealing with popup and adware file removal. I have downloaded and currently now regularly use adaware and spybot. The programs are great at removing little files but does anyone know of programs that will halt the automatic download of these files onto my computer?
I have heard of programs that will create a message saying that the computer is currently downloading something and asks you if you would like to continue the download or not.
It really irks me when I am surfing the net and all of a sudden some message pops up saying that my computer is now finished downloading some program that I didn't consent to!!!
Thanks for any help guys.
P.S. I am currently still using Windows 98 as my platform if that matters.
