Default Pop up ads

The last few times I have logged onto the board, I have started to get pop up ads at the bottom of my screen. This is the only web site that it is happening to. Has anyone else have this happen?

Yes, I’ve been getting them. I click the X to get rid if it but they come back after a minute

This has been happening to me the last week or so and it's really annoying! I never had them until recently so I don't know if it had to do with the upgrade or not.

I use Adblock Plus. It's free. You can unblock particular sites if you want.

Yes, Adblock Plus. Have used it for years. Works on all programs.

What browser are you using? FF likes to turn off the program sometimes when they do updates. I had to re-install the ad-block plus on one of my computers.

I use this too, no pop ups at all. It works great on a lot of blogs that have popups too.

it does not come from the QB.
you are infected with malware.
you can get free malware programs online.

if somebody can post a screenshot, maybe our tech support can help you pinpoint the source of the pop-up.
