I get frequent annoying pop ups whilst using internet explorer.

Also a PC fixup utility  runs and tells me Ive got  registry  errors that need to be fixed.
When I click on fix , it wants me to register and buy the product.

Please advise

First of all you should fully scan your system with an updated AntiVirus.
Then, you might consider CCleaner.

"PC fixup utility" is in itself an infection which needs to be removed.
Check if you have "PC fixup utility" in Add/Remove Program and if it is there uninstall it.

After which you would need to run RogueKiller.
Then MalwareBytes. Quick Scan, followed by Full System Scan.
If Quick Scan ask you to reboot then reboot the system and after the reboot run the full system scan.

Post the logs of RougeKiller and MalwareBytes after the scans.
