    On my computer compatibility mood is under tools and internet options. I just click on the A/A in the upper left corner and have no problems. It pays to be careful about the adjustments one makes as they can create more problems than one already has. A good anti-virus program is a must. I use the free AVG one. As long as the A/A works for me I will not mess around trying to change compatibility settings. I have windows 8 on my computer.

    Oops! Mean to say that is where I found pop-up blocker. It is checked on mine. Compatibility view setting is just above internet options. Didn't mean to lead anyone astray.

    Oh yes - pop-ups and redirects are driving me crazy

    I BLOCK my cookies and have the pop up blocker on so the typos are all my mistake!! I didn't like all these ads displaying items I had just looked at. Though I find this compatibility issue interesting. Some of eBays utilities have suddenly stopped working for me over a week ago and some note was there noting something about "compatibility mode".

    When you say "click on compatibility mode", you mean to add this site, right?
    I use AVG. I am glad to find out I was not alone, Thank you all for your suggestions

    Check for malware too. I had this problem yesterday when I attempted to read the QB. It wasn't the board at all. It was my computer. Thankfully not viruses, but irritating, nevertheless.

    I got rid of the malware and everything is fine.

    I'm using Chrome and have both the pop-ups and typing problems. I also have Ad-block. Managed fiddle around and sort all out a couple of weeks ago, but now it's all back, and only seems to affect this board - at the moment. I didn't have these problems with IE, except it wouldn't let me post photos, so changed to chrome.

    Have done some searching and found these pop-ups or 'pursue points' are a program that has been sneakily installed on my computer. Try going to start - control panel - instal/uninstal - select 'pursue points', tell it to uninstall. Close any programs that are open - then restart your computer. Viola - I have no more unwanted ads
