what antivirus, spyware, anti malware, security and firewall programs have you got installed?

We need to know this and what OS it is (XP home, XP pro, Vista?)

Does it give you any details of what the threat is?

If you can please copy/type the message for us to see.

What is your OS?
What Anti Virus and Anti malware do you have, and, hopefully,use?

I get the feeling from your post that you're using Avast as your anti virus. What you need to do is, in my opinion, is delete all cookies and temporary files, then do a deep scan with your Anti malware programme followed by a deep scan with your Anti virus programme.

I also know that your resident shield is working.

It comes up with warning found cookies on opening, Something to do with Media. Sorry I will right it down for next time, as I forget what it tells me.

I welcome your input, I prefer it when there is lots of input from others it serves to confirm am on right track.

The PC has Windows Firewall. One of the pop up says Threat Removed MSNPORTAL1122o7(1), another is called Tacoda, another Mediaplex, does this help?

Download superantispyware (free version) from here; click here Update it and run a full scan.
Is AVG an antivirus? If so update it and also run a full scan.
Personally I'd uninstall AVG and install Avast Home Antivirus but that's only my humble opinion.
Avast Home; click here
