    Every time I go onto this website I have pop ups come on the screen before I can even get logged in?!!! As soon as you touch anything your whisked away to win a free iPhone!!
    Seriously??
    It's really becoming a PITA to get on this site. Anyone else have issues?

    LOL, are you on Internet Explorer or something?

    I have ad-blockers on my browsers, and I've never seen a pop up on this forum before. Not even once.

    Sorry to inform you, you probably have a adware infection on your computer.
    The one I got on my computer was
    DNSUnlocker
    And it was a horror to get rid of. And no the virus protection I had did not catch it to keep it out.

    Just to be clear this is only happening if I'm not logged in.... When I'm logged in , No pop ups... Very odd.
    It just makes it hard to get logged in before pop ups take over lol

    Well mine was only on certain sites so it was strange also. I tried for a week to get rid of it.
    I finally did a restore from my start up disks and It was gone.

    Be sure that your software updates are current, then load an ad blocker. This is especially true if you are on an iPad.

    Also if you have downloaded any programs that is where most come in from.
    I used 7 different ad blocker programs to try to clear mine and none worked. After the ad ware gets in it rewrites the computers main files.
    I have McAfee and it did not stop it from getting in.
