Q: Is it possible for the internet browser history and favorites history to have sites from pop-ups that were” x”-ed out of?

    Yes, all pages that get accessed by the browser get added to the history.

    It’s also possible for a page to get automatically added to favorites, though this is generally rare.

    I’d suggest running a full Spyware/malware scan of the PC.

    If you’re using Firefox, the adblock plug addon http://adblockplus.org/en/ will block most pop-up ads
