Plagued by Pop Ups

Hi Guys, after allowing my son to use my laptop I am now plagued by pop ups as soon as my desktop icons have loaded. This continues whilst the laptop is in use. I have re-set my IE security settings, ran Norton IS, Ad-Aware and McAfee Stinger to no avail. The ones with a web address have been put in my restricted sites, but they still keep coming. I don't want to use my recovery disk but fear the worst. Any help or advice would be welcome. Thanks

Many thanks. I have downloaded and ran malwarebytes and it detected 10 infected areas!
Have cleaned and re-started my computer and it looks as though everything is OK. Many thanks for your suggestion!
