Anoying popup!

I frequently get a popup from this site. It seems to popup when
I move my mouse in a certain way. If I do nothing too long it
pops up. It hits me about every 5 to 10 seconds. I always
say "No Thanks" but it keeps coming back.
Am I doomed to say "Yes" and do whatever it wants. Is there
anyway out?

This is what it looks like;

Never click on a blind pop up. It lets them know you are getting them and verifies your IP. Get a good antivirus/pop up program and make sure it is regularly updated.

I think that this is good advice for popup's.

Find and install, "Spybot", and "Malwarebytes".
There are free versions, and they are very good at finding nasty things hiding in your computer!

Today that annoying popup went away! It was there yesterday.
I did not do anything on my part. It is possible that Firefox changed
something behind my back. I think that this web site fixed whatever
problem that caused the popup.

Anyway, I am happy now.
Pete.

Another free service is "Adblock Plus".
It's added to your browser as an extension.
I get almost no popups.
Some websites ask that I turn it off to view, but I don't.

Right now, I see it's blocking 19 elements.

Good Tip MollysDad.

Im all over that!

I would still run the two programs I suggested, cos I bet there are nasties lurking!

While anyone else is in there, let me repost that Chrome and Firefox have a extension that bypasses the Photobucket picture block, so you see the old thread with all the pictures again!

Switch to an Apple Mac computer and you won't be spending your time running a bunch of apps to stop these assaults on your computer. Got that pop-up once and never again...

Another vote for Adblock Plus. I'm showing that it's blocking 21 elements for me just now. It really improves web browsing, especially here on Air Forums.

Take with a grain of salt. I'm using a Mac and still (obviously) use Adblock Plus.

I also use Adblock plus.
There is a separate download for each browser you are using.

Never seen as many redirects, popups and adds as this website has. Absolutely horrible to navigate. Impossible to log on at work because of the sheer number of redirects the website gets flagged by our virus protection.

popups & redirects

I agree, the redirects are annoying.
Air345fly the popup probably went away because it left a 'Beep' on your computer. Clear the cache and cookies when you close your browser, it will help with keeping you from being tracked. ( the popup may show backup)

Try the browser 'Brave' . I don't see that popup with Brave. I see it with Firefox. Use 'Brave' and that way you don't 'have' to download all those third party apps, unless you want to. 'Brave' fights the adware stuff pretty good.
I use Adblock on 'Opera' and Firefox. I have been using Firefox less and less.

The thing about Brave, it uses a lot of resources on your computer. It has some quirks, but its pretty close to Firefox. Hope taht helps
Have a good one !
