Default Ad Pop Ups On This Forum?

Is anybody else experiencing problems with annoying ad pop ups on this forum?

Something apparently seemed to change recently that while cruising the forum, if I go to view a thread, or post a reply, the screen constantly jumps back to the top of the screen, forcing me to only view the ad box that appears under the PT CRUISER FORUM header and to the left of the thread title.

I have pop ups disabled. The only way that I can clear it is to close the browser window, and open a new one. This only happens on my laptop, running WIN10 and Chrome. I don't experience any problem using the forum on my phone.

Just curious if anyone else is having this problem?

I'm using win 7 and it happens to me one in a while, I thought it was my mouse but it clears if I go to another web site.

I get a warning at the top of the screen, something to the affect of that the page is trying to load scripts from unauthenticated sources.

I haven't noticed any pop-ups. I do notice that the ads on top of the forum try and sell me something that I was looking for on eBay. Now how do you supposed it knew that?

I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.

Some malware will cause these kinds of pop-ups. If using Firefox, check you ad-ons. You may see something there that doesn't belong. Also, using C Cleaning is a good idea. It will remove some malware that tries to start with your browser.

For overall protection, I've found that Norton 360 Security does a really good job. I usually buy just the annual activation keys on eBay from a trusted seller. It's much cheaper that way.
