I am using google chrome on my laptop and it has been great until recently. When I try to watch a movie online (netflix, youtube, etc) I usually, but not always, get this:

I also sometimes get that puzzle thing in place of an image on some sites.

In the couple of days I have also been getting occasional internet explorer pop ups when I am online using Google chrome.

This is a newish laptop, good internet connection, ........ what is going on?

This sounds like malware of some sort. Try running a full antivirus scan and see if it finds anything. If you don't have an antivirus application, Microsoft Security Essentials (http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/) is pretty good, and it's free.
