Fingers crossed it lets me post this!

To cut a long story short my son downloaded something he shouldnt have.. and now my internet keeps popping up mid browsing session and going to adverts.

Ive tried running the usual AVG that i have .. to no avail.. and ive had a little look down the things running using the task manager but there so much in there i dont know where to begin!

As ive said before.. im not technically minded.. so any help in easy steps would be greatfully received! thanks in advance

go back and repeat ALL the steps I gave you with the last problem
Uninstall any and all toolbars
reset your browser home page to Google (pr whatever you prefer)
The get rid of AVG. It's not all that reliable, and replace it with AVAST and Treatfire (both together). If you are running Windows XP also add Windows Defender
