Me too. All the other pop up adds are also annoying. Soon, I will no longer be coming here also. I always liked this site, but lately it is becoming a vehicle for pop upsToday, every time I come on this site I keep getting McAfee pop up ads. It's making using the forum almost impossible. I only get them on here, so I'm wondering why????
I haven't a clue how to do all of that (and does any of it cost money?). Use an alternative browser?? Just to be able to use this site? No, I'll see if that damn McAfee pop up persists; if not, fine. If so, I may be out of here.I sincerely suggest re-checking / adjusting your browser settings including site specific settings, find and install the appropriate extensions "if needed" OR employ an alternative browser. No body enjoys such annoyances but I am sure you can find a solution. I have previously suggested Brave browser and while it functions well at preventing adds etc it can also be annoying.
When I tried it in full browser mode, not smartphone mode, Adblock wiped out the whole site. I had to whitelist SOTW on AdBlocker if I wanted to see the site.I use AdBlock Plus. Its free and I don't see any popups at all. Great for youtube too.
Your battery was too low to get to MacAffee, you need at least 45% charge!Am I the only person using a IPad or Mac Pro notebook? I installed Malwarebites awhile back this year. Have seen none (pop ups) on this site since.
When you can read anything on a site without getting blasted with ads why join in??
Should I read a "recommended reading". Maybe I'll learn what makes members upset.

I, too, am using an iPad, and am experiencing an increasing number of FlashPlayer pop ups - exclusively on this site. How many? I just got interrupted by "Update Flash Player" five times while typing this response.Am I the only person using a IPad or Mac Pro notebook? I installed Malwarebites awhile back this year.

Correct! I don't know computer lingo very well, so I called it a "pop-up", but now I see that's the wrong term. I don't know what to call it (other than a term that would be censored on here), but it fills the whole page. Hasn't happened yet this morning, though.sure. THAT IS WHAT WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THE WHOLE TIME. At least I have.
NOT a popup. At least 10-12 times in the last few days. Only once today in 3-4 visits. Pretty crummy.
This was originally caused by a very a common virus. There could be more by now because Adobe is a name many people trust. The original was not a hugely fatal virus, just one that would cause all kinds of ads to appear .I just got interrupted by "Update Flash Player" five times while typing this response.
