You can use the keyboard shortcut Command + Q to quit Safari. Or you can force quit from the Activity Monitor (Applications/Utilities)
There's a great popup blocker called GlimmberBlocker. Compatible with Snow Leopard and Safari 5.
Free and available here. http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/internet_utilities/glimmerblocker.html
That blocks pop ups for all your browsers and when Apple updates Safari, Glimmer Blocker will keep working. After Glimmer Blocker is installed you can access it from System Preferences / Glimmer Blocker.
Is it possible for something to install in the background without my knowledge (such as a keylogger, spyware, etc.)?
From your Safari menu click Safari / Preferences then select the General tab. At the bottom General pane select the box: Open "safe" files after downloading. That way only safe files are downloaded.
