    Pop up ads with this site.

    I have all pop up ads disabled in chrome. Yet, when I come to this site, I often get 1 or 2 pop up ads as change pages. I've scanned my PC with malwarebytes and AVG and nothing was found. It only happens with this site.

    Any ideas?

    Yep. Same ad company for me. Usually first click when I go to change from the main page. Sometimes, when I click on the next page as well, I get a second. What I don't get is that pop ups are disabled. Somehow, these are getting past Chrome settings. I believe it is the site.

    Not sure what it was that came up on mine? Looked like animation? I was just glad it wasn't porn.

    Re: Pop up ads with this site.

    Thanks for the heads up guys. This was a new ad code we put in on Friday, except I don't think it is acting right. I'm looking into the situation. Thanks.

    Re: Pop up ads with this site.

    I am still getting zedo pop ups. Researching online, if it hijacks your computer it seems to be very difficult to remove. So far I only get this on this site. Hopefully this get fixed soon.

    I've been getting it also when I switch from the main page to the forum. Hope it gets squared away.

    Re: Pop up ads with this site.

    Can one of you guys email me a screenshot of what you're seeing? We put in a code for random pop-unders. It's an extra way for us to make some money to pay the bills. But it's not supposed to be a pop up. Only supposed to happen at max one or two times a day to any given user. Thanks.

    I don't get these pop ups on a Mac or an iPad. Just last week a story on the internet destiled how to set Apple products in a manner that prevents these ads. I set each Apple product accordingly.

    Here is a screen shot for just a few minutes ago. I had to clear my history (cache and cookies) to get it to appear today. I believe it is repeatable.
