Sounds like you have a virus/trojan/malware, download and install ClamXav from here, ClamXav run a virus scan, if you are not able to detect any viruses then I'd suggest you take a screenshot so we have a better idea of what your seeing, to take a screenshot press cmd + shift + esc together, good luck :-)

What antivirus software do you recommend for my iMac. I am having problems with pop-ups and other interruptions.

You say you are just beginning-do you mean that you are new to Apple? If you are coming from Windows, your question is understandable. The short answer could be: you don't need any antivirus software. I strongly recommend that you go to and search for discussions on antivirus ware for Apple. The discussions are very informative and will explain my answer (better than I can). I switched from windows to Apple in November, 2011 and tried a paid antivirus software: MacKeeper; and a free software: Clamxav. MacKeeper is a scam, don't waste your time or money. Clamxv is one of the few programs recommended for Apple systems. I recently uninstalled it as it seemed to be slowing my system down.
Re: pop-ups: if you are using Safari, go to preferences-security- web content and click the box-Block Pop-up windows. You may find that depending on what on-line work you are doing, you may need pop-ups to be enabled so this not a perfect fix. Also, make sure your Safari is up-to-date.
Finally, stay away from bad sites. You know, the ones everyone warns you about! Good luck, and enjoy your Mac!
BTW, I have had no virus/malware/trojan horse issues.

Fix gray screen mac

There could be a couple of things to check first. Pull the memory modules and clean the gold contacts with some isotropic alcohol thens restart the laptop, Next make sure each module is working by checking "About this Mac" Hardware, memory. Also if you recently upgraded to a later OS, that new OS may require more memory that the previous system. Finally it may be your hard drive is going ad or already has gone bad. This is a good reason to have a back-up drive for your computer.
