Jim, you can pretty much take care of everything you wrote by using Firefox with Adblock plus and NoScript. I hardly ever see a popup. I might see one or two a year. Facebook, twitter, etc, they dont bother me as I donr whitelist them in NoScript and only allow them when its really necessary for something important.

In NoScript, I set sites that I whitelist to also whitelist flash videos but you can set it up so flash is not whitelisted even when you whitelist JS for a site. In other words, videos wont play in whitelisted sites unless you allow the particular video. I use the programs that I mentioned to clean up the internet of annoyances. I am glad they exist otherwise, I would feel exactly like you.
