    Does anyone else this annoying pop up that's called My Web Face. It says you can make a cartoon of your face and it's free you just have to click. I was getting it a lot when I first joined this board and they luckly it went away. Today it is back with a vengence and it's a pain in the neck and impossible to get rid of. I barely get to read one discussion and there it is showing it's ugly face again and again and again. Please help. I do have an antivirus and pop up blocker on my computer and this is the only site that this is happening on. :-(

    Yup, in the same boat! I asked Admin about it and he says that I probably have adware somewhere on my system. Got that far, was going to research adware, and then was distracted. Now that it's back again, I'll have to renew my research!

    I have the same issue with the same controls in place. Only happens on the "Quilting Board". I live in MA! Is this a state issue???? I wish we could get rid of it!

    I've never seen it. The only pop ups I get here are the quilting ones and ones that pertain any subject discussed. It's a little unnerving to have a shoe ad show up if someone mentions shoes, etc.

    I have McAfee. Does anyone know if this protects you against Adware? My subscription is active and up to date. I have done a full scan of my system. Still have it!

    You will have to get some to remove the adware I think, hubby always takes care of that for me. That one of the reason I keep him. LOL :wink:
