    Do any of you get pop-up ads for a work at home site while you are logged in to the Quilding Board? I've been getting them for the past several weeks and it is really driving me batty. I have my pop-up blocker at the highest setting possible, but they still come. I would really like to know if it happens to anyone else.

    I don't think I've ever seen a pop up ad while reading the board

    I haven't been getting them on this site. I sometimes do when I'm on my homepage or when I go to a link from here. I know for me it is because I'm not very good at using my laptop and I drag my mouse over things and open them up when I don't mean to.

    If you are seeing popups while browsing the board, your computer is infected with adware.

    If you download and use Mozilla Firefox you can block all ads.

    You need to run a virus check on your computer... get malware bytes, the free version works just as well as the pay for one...

    What browser do you use?
