Pop ups

Hi A mate of mine is using AOL 9

When he logs on he gets different popups appearing....casinotropez and something about spring break where the ones I saw when I was there.
Does anyone know anything about this?
He is using a newish version of macafee for antivirus etc but a scan showed nothing.

He is running XP.
Any help would be gratefully received.
