    It could be a ad you have on site. Some ads or banners have pop ups.

    Your computer could have pop up on it. Scan computer then check site for any code. I would right click view source on any page pop ups are on. Then go and fix it.

    if your site has indeed been hacked, i would look at upgrading the software you are using to the latest version.

    Also what rcj662 said - run a spyware/adware scanner on your machine to make sure your machine itself itsn't infected.

    Look through your source files for any javascript or calls to any javascript in which you didn't implement.

    If you don't get any popups looking at other sites then its pretty likely your actual home machine is not infected and someone has inserted their popup ads into your site's source files. You can also check the last time in which the files were changed for further indication.
