    Flashing message

    This morning when I got onto QB, where I get advertisements there is a flashing message saying there is something wrong with my PC and I should click here for help. I don't have a PC. What is this? The message continues to appear as I scroll from main to pictures to general chit chat- what's up?

    it's an advertisement for some service. I would NOT click on it. I have had many computers get infected with viruses that way. Ended up having to wipe the hard drive and reload all the software. very painful!

    It is similar to some random person standing on the street telling you that "you may be sick, come see me right now and I will tell you for certain" not a very healthy option!

    if you are sure that pop-up is connected to a QB ad space, send a screen-shot to info@quiltingboard.com .
    their policy is to block all pop-ups and "flashy" ads.
