Title: Overhwelmed by pop up ads
Post by: Nick 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.

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....

It sounds like you have been infected with text enhance adware. Remove any unneeded or suspicious extensions from your browser then install and run Malwarebytes and CCleaner. That should get rid of it.  Thumbs:

Click the "wrench" in the upper-right corner
Select "Tools"
Select "Extensions"
Remove the Codec that is labeled with either a C, M, or V (they seem to be the most common ones so far).
