    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"

    Go to malwarebytes.org and download the free version. Let it update and run a full scan... Malwarebytes gets most infections...

    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.

    AVG is pretty poor
