Download Adblock Plus, it's available for most common browsers. It's a small program and works excellently on Firefox and Chrome. If you use Internet Explorer don't download it. I tried it on IE (although it's just a test / under-development download for IE) and it seems to have slowed down my computer and made it glitchy. This is only useful at stopping off-ebay ads. If you want to stop ebay's stupid little pop-up boxes you've no chance.

If you use firefox with the greasemonkey addon there is a user script which will stop this annoying popup,I've just tried it and so far it's working.
