CID pop ups - even after reformatting

  1. This may have been posted already but there is so much to read so posting a fresh one for me. I am hoping you can help me.

    Since Sunday August 31 I have been getting these cid popups every few minutes and sometimes several at a time. I use AVG and Ad Aware and have run these several times. As I type this I have AVG running again and it has already found a trojan horse downloader plus several cookies. Each time it finds and removes items yet popups still keep coming back.

    I was tired of getting these popups so reformated my computer on Sunday, the day this all started, and yet again they are back. I am not sure what to do. I use my computer for internet banking so this concerns me that I have these infections.

    Please if you have any information that can help me to get rid of this once and for all I would appreciate it.
