Have you tried to scan with MalwareBytes and Super Anti-Spyware?
Here are the links...

http://filehippo.com/download_superantispyware/

Let SAS scan for cookies and let it handle them (they are harmless).
Please run a scan with both and report back the results.
I tend to trust avast!  :)

A screenshot of the popup could also be helpful.

this is probably some fake security program, like XP Antivirus.

Yes at the minimum you should run MBAM and post the contents of the log in your next reply.

Just copy and paste the contents of the MBAM log, which should be displayed after the scan into your next post.

I can't claim to Bob or David - but I would just let mbam deal with them - it's a fake AV.

Yes please do exactly that. Once Malwarebytes has done it's job, reboot your computer.
Your pop ups should now be gone.
