Default Pop up ads

Is anyone else having trouble with a good sized pop up ad when you open the QB? It pops up repeatedly. It's enough to make me leave if I can't figure how to get rid of it.

Is it in the lower left side? I sent an email to the QB email address and it was returned as undeliverable. I'm about ready to leave the QB because the ad takes so much space.

The latest one on the lower left hand corner is the most annoying. I can deal with all the others.

Yes the large ad in the lower left corner is very intrusive and annoying - after clicking the "x" in the ad's upper right corner it
would disappear but would pop back about every 20-30 sec.
I was super frustrated with it yesterday as I couldn't read postings since it popped up frequently and was blocking the threads.
I clcked on the little icon that sits to the left of the "x" in the right hand top of the ad and it took me to a page where I clicked unsunscribe -The ad is not appearing today. I was apprehensive to do this because I didn't want to have anything imbed in my system so I next cleared all browsing data and cookies and did a system check. Hope it worked with nothing left behind in my system

Unhappy pop ups

This is the only website that I have popup ads on. Everyone says to install an ad blocker, but because this is the only site I have a problem with, I don't want to. It all started when they changed the format. I do not visit very much anymore because of this.
