I think you might have a malware virus - I heard someone else discovered this on their device last week.

I haven't had any pop ups. Have you run your malware software to see if you picked something up?

No pop ups here.  When I have gotten adware in the paast all I do is reset my computer to an earlier date and it's gone like magic and I don't have to call "the guy".

Sorry, Michael.  I'm not seeing this.  So you may want to check your computer.

Do yourself a huge favor.  Get AdBlock Plus.   It is free and all adds are gone.  A

I found it. I pickup an unwanted add on in my Firefox browser. That and a scan hopefully fixed it. Thanks to everyone for your help.

Michael Setunsky I have my 'adblock' for browser on - so I do not see any ads on ActiveRain.

No "Pop-Ups' here.

Go the easy route and try a previous restore point. If that works it will prove way easier than a scrub and if it doesn't work, you are only out 20 minutes during which time you can finish 3 sets of: 25 pushups, 20 burpees and 30 squats.

Haven't seen it on my end. I would suggest getting CCleaner for your computer (free) and check your browser settings for unknown plug ins.

I use ADBlock Plus on Active Rain and other sites, so I rarely see advertisements. It's FREE and it filters well. You can shut it off on sites like your MLS, Zipforms, Docusign, etc, wherwe you need popups.
