Default Pop up Prize message

Just a quick heads up. I'm trying to read a thread and a new screen keeps popping up to tell me I've been selected for a prize. When I click on the x, it doesn't let me leave but continues on. This has happened twice on the same thread.

Sounds like the same pop up I was getting on multiple threads yesterday. I kept having to close the tab in Safari that had this board to make it go away.

sounds like your computers have been infected by an adware/malware program.
it doesn't originate from the QB.

Patrice, I’m having the same issue just now. I was reading a new post concerning adding a beneficiary to your Facebook page. The pop up is a google ad .
