Nuisance Popups

Hi,

Is anyone else receiving nuisance "Lucky Winner" pop-ups that are making it harder to navigate this site?

I have my android's browser set for no pop-ups, but they still seem to be infesting this site, as it's the only one where this is happening. And it has only begun to happen in the last couple of weeks.

Thanks for any thoughts you might have.

Rich Phillips

You need to get ad blocker. Also scan your computer for a virus. I'm betting you will see these on any website not just here.

Yes sounds like a virus.

Hi,

Avast says I'm clean, Adblocker is active, and it only happens on this forum.

Color me puzzled.

Same thing happens to me. Only on my phone and only on this site. Goes in spells. Some days I can't even use this site. Other days it is fine.

Get Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from download.cnet.com, install the free version, it usually works.

maybe download and try a different browser on your android, just to see what happens

Hi rsdata,

Switched to Firefox, and so far no pop-ups. Will stick with it today and see if it stays solid.

But everything else I do is on Chrome, so I'd like to solve it. nyone know what setting in Chrome might make a difference?

Thanks.

Rich
