Ah now I know what you're referring to....YES not today but in the past I have posted on this site about pop ups and viruses....today is the first time anyone ever responded that they also had these.....I am not alone then.
Hmmmm..... Perhaps this site is infected. Visiting here unleashes the virus payload. Since I'm not experiencing it, different OS's and browsers must be affected differently. FWIW, I'm using a Chromebook, which obviously uses ChromeOS and the Chrome browser. I haven't tried visiting here with our Windoze computer.
I access this site about a dozen times a day.,. never seen pop ups here . I use an iPad half of the time, and a Dell PC the other half, so different OS, and different search engines. Furthermore , I don’t have the pop-up blocker activated in either one . Still no pop ups from this site , I do get them on all sorts of other sites though..just not often enough to bug me yet .
Well, I think I finally got rid of the pop up...It happened on two different computers and both only happened on this site...Norton and PC-Matic were both not effective in getting rid of it...The only thing I can see in common was running Firefox..Blocking it didn't help as it would still kick me off the site...The fix was refreshing Firefox as that seemed to work...Hope that helps someone...Jason
In a former life, I was an IT administrator. It's real easy to say that you are an idiot for using "insert name here" browser or operating system. Firefox was the victim now, next week it could be Chrome or??? Geeky guys go for the put down, but what goes around comes around. We are all victims.
