hi guys,

my pc had a pretty serious virus yesterday so i reformatted my hard drive and did a clean install.

the only things i have downloaded since are avg free anti virus, google chrome and divx codec package.

but for some reason i am getting annoying audio ads when browsing the net , there are no window pop ups or anything just random gaviscon audio ads, also it doesnt seem to matter what website i am on.

iv googled the problem and people are saying malware etc , but since its a clean install and these ^ ^ are the only programs i have downloaded so it surley cant be.

any advice on fixes would be great

ps iv tried the google chrome extension ad blocker but it hasnt stopped them

Try using firefox, and run the adblock plus extension, see if that helps at all. But a scan with Malware Bytes Anti Malware and with Spybot Search and Destroy wouldn't hurt. Also, just a preference, because I used to use AVG. Try Avast. Seems a little better than AVG, and one thing I love is that it has a pre boot scan option. I also run PC tools firewall plus. It should alert you if anything is trying to get in your computer.
