The link is : ZEDO Ad Serving : Optout

If you're using Firefox as your browser you can find an excellent -albeit slightly tedious - plug in to give you complete control over java scripts on every site you visit. I think it's called Scriptblocker, but if you search for add ons you'll find it.

Hopefully that's of some help.
Or another way of doing it is to use a advert blocking application like Ad Muncher, with this string in the new filters section ** and block the url in the filter category it will stop any popup.

Ad Muncher put a stop to any advert, no more of those drive by infections from clicking on adverts. These are the stats from my computer from the last 2 years...
