Overhwelmed by pop up ads
« on: April 20, 2015, 06:12:26 AM »
Every time I look at the VP today I am assaulted by pop up ads and redirects. Doesn't happen with any other site. Is there a problem??

Don't know about redirects but I installed Adblock Plus to stop them on Youtube and it blocks them on all sites.

Sounds like you may have some malware on your system though. Run a virus scan and then install and run Malwarebytes. Between the 2 of them you should be sorted.
Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

I've just pressed all the buttons randomly and pulled a lever or two....

...everything seems fine - the only blocking I can see on my system is the Amazon ad....  redface:

I've been to the SMF support portal and there aren't any reports of anything unusual..... they have billions of installed sites and generally, if I find anything wrong here there are allready dozens of reports over there when I log-in....

Let me know if I can do anything else....

Ever since I've downloaded Adblock, all the single girls in my area seem to have lost interest...  rubschin:

You sure that's down to adblock and not because you uploaded a photo..  rubschin:
