Please can anyone help me get rid of annoying pop-up ads that appear on my google homepage - the same ads seem to 'follow' me around as they also appear on facebook, youtube etc.

From what you've said so far it looks like it could be an "adware" infection.

Download, install, update and run a "Quick Scan" with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free edition - you can get it from here. During the installation process, make sure you untick the option to install the trial of the Pro version.
