Hi. I have a machine running windows vista. Vimax bleep enlargement ads keep showing up on webpages. I've tried malwarebytes, but it hasn't gotten rid of the ads. Please help! Thanks so much!

Use Super Antispyware to find and remove malware. After downloading, installing and UPDATING, reboot into safe mode to run the scan. Directions for using SAS are in the link below.

Blocking and removing the Ad/Tracking cookies may help, too.
You can block the Ad/ tracking cookies from ever installing on your computer by following the steps below.
This applies to Internet explorer browsers.
Click on tools
click on internet options
click on privacy tab
click on advanced button
put a check in the box next to override automatic cookie handling
put a check in the box next to first party accept
put a check in the box next to block third party cookies (those are the ad/ tracking cookies that AVG deletes)
Click OK to exit
Then just run another quick scan with SAS to remove the third party cookies that were installed before changing the settings.

Also, do you have your popup blocker enabled in IE?
You may have recently added a toolbar or program that is supported by these ads. Check your addons for anything you don't recognize.
