everytime I am online I have a few advertising pop ups appearing...

I ran spybot search and destroy and my antivirus program

My antivirus - AVG has not reported any viruses

Spybot reported a few things none of which were trojan or malware..

How do I get rid of these annoying pop ups?

Please help

Cheers

P.S. Mod - please change the title to "annoying pop ups"

AVG isn't that good imho. As above, run malwarebytes. It isn't an antivirus as such though, even with real time protection enabled (Pro version). I suggest you do a further scan with something like Avira or GDATA 2010. Between them, you should cover all bases.

following this, stop going to bad sites etc

use firefox http://www.mozilla-europe.org/en/firefox/
install this addon for firefox https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1865

when firefox opens following the restart, tick the 'Easylist' subscription


AVG is pretty poor
