Can Norton stop pop up advertisements?

I have pop up ads that come up on every one of my personal sites, Also words in my documents have blue click on ads. It's really a pain. They're everywhere and often stops me from being able to work on updating my blogs when they get in the way.  Is there a setting in Norton for not allowing this free advertising?

Thank you so much. I'll give it a try. Will running a full security scan help?
