    Default More ads / invasive pop ups?

    PROBLEM SOLVED - was indeed Malware

    Any one else getting this? It's only on beyond so I don't think my computer has any malware (Editted photos to remove double monitors)

    TONS of ads all over the screen



    The same ad repeated every 3-4 posts



    I'm also getting sent to an Internet Survey for http://surveygenieonline.com/

    None of your pictures work for me. I also haven't seen any ads similar to those you describe but maybe I'll recognize the pictures.

    I haven't seen anything like that.

    I get the standard top right banner ad,
    the one below the heiarchy to which thread you're in,
    the one in the first post,
    the one above the reply box,
    and the one at the very bottom.

    All fairly small banners.

    Bump:

    I am getting in site pop ups that take up 80% of the screen on here lately... getting really annoying

    They are for Interact Direct... interesting they are stating "Nobody Likes a Pop Up" or something.

    Ditto on the Interac "We don't like interest rates popping up either" ad. Worse yet, it wouldn't let me close the ad! I had to refresh the page to get rid of it.

    Fuck this ad... twice now it has started up at the top of the screen on it's own in blaring volume.

    It shouldn't be playing automatically!

    That Dodge ad should only play if the cursor hovers over the video tab in the banner. If it is indeed autoplaying for some of you, I'll let them know.
