    When you say popups m8, do you mean like adds popping up on your desktop even when your not connected to the internet?If so you might have adware or spyware on your system, you mentioned avg antivirus/spycatcher but do you have a firewall running if not you could try zonealarms they offer a free one? try and download spybot search and destroy its free and it removes most spyware, well its worth a try.

    Here is a link:
    SpybotS&D

    ZoneAlarm Free Download
    for zone alarms click on the free download link on the right.
    Hope this helps !!!

    If after that you still have popups popping up on your desktop, then download HijackThis and send the log to here
