Three times now over the last few weeks, while on this Site Only, I've had a PopUp Screen claiming that my Windows System is Defective, and I need to 'Press Here to Fix it'.. It will open a few Popups, making it hard to close the Windows, before the next one pops up..

So far of the three times it's happened, the screens have been different, but the warning is always 'Press here to Fix'.. One time I had to Restart My machine to get the Garbage off..

Like I said, it's only happening when I'm Viewing this site.. W10 latest Updates installed..

I realize you guys make your money from adds, but I think you should check out who is placing what garbage where, on the Site that you run..

AND.. The 'Latest Release Notes' keep popping up and will not leave me alone.. No really, all I want to do is read a little, and not be bothered by Wiggly/Flashy things annoying me to sign off and cool down..

No really..

These guys couldn't find their own anus's in the dark with two hands and a flashlight.
This site is not monitored, it is simply a small cash cow they don't give an aviational intercourse about.

Cap they want you to pay for a premium membership then these mob like tactics will go away. This is what I have been writing about all along because others that have been under their grip have gone though the same things and it was only a matter of time as this is their end game. Next will come paid sympathizers that will come to their defense.
For anyone out there that wants to enjoy this board pay for it and encourage all of your friends to do the same.
They will turn up the heat with more advertising and slowdowns as their way of shaking you down.

Cap, as I was reading your post, the screen went to I was the winner of the “5 billion search”. Funny as I wasn’t even searching. Sorry for your frustration.

Cap you need to use some sort of AdBlocker plug-in. It's free and it works. It also cut out unskippable ads before Youtube videos.

I'm using "uBlock Origin" on Google Chrome.

If anyone is still getting these on their device, I'd like to grab the full url address of the page that it takes you to.

Kevin, this thread was started TWO WEEKS ago, in the Site information and help section.

Do you think two weeks is an appropriate reaction time?
Perhaps you would care to share with the community how often an AGadmin checks in on the site?

Honestly, you lot could give Lord Lucan a run in a hide and seek competition...........

You may have d/l malware somehow. I would clear all cookies, cache, etc. on your web browser. Use uBlock or AdBlock Plus, I use both. Also, google the pop-up that occurred to see if it is serious or repetitive, or a problem at all.

Sorry to hear cap. It has days where that’s all I can see only on this site. I just ghost it for a week and try again later.
It’s happening to me on an iPhone 8.

You have malware that is beyond the scope of what this website is causing. The random pop-ups and URL redirects are caused by something deeper such as an unwanted program in the background or a registry edit.

Next time this happens, If you press Crtl+Shift+Esc it will bring up Task Manager. Take a look at what processes are running and post a picture of it.
