Thanks for the exquisite description of the pop-ups...

The first link you posted, the pop-up warns the user their system has outdated Java (even though mine is current) and wants to download software...

The second one just goes to a blank web page.

Am using Chrome on a Macbook Pro without the AdBlock Plus extension installed...

Have you investigated Adblock Plus?

Default Interesting

The first site is asking you to download a trojan horse (and not this kind TROJANĀ® Brand Condoms).
That seems like an EXCELLENT idea. Give up control of my computer to some unknown software.

A website wants to download nasties to your system and yet all you are worried about is how to block the popup to continue on to the website???????

You need to recognize the illusive sarcasm. Hard to spot sometimes
