Porn Pop Ups?

Has anyone else started a thread or replyed to one and then have a Porn Ad Pop Up? It's happened twice to me and was wandering if the site has been hit with something. It will flash up for half a second or so(nothing REALLY graphic) and then close itself.

Oh. And it has only happened on this site. Tried posting test posts on other sites, but has only happened here.

Re: Porn Pop Ups?

There is nothing on our server or linked in any pages that would do this.

I'd suggest clearing out your cookies and restarting your computer. Might not be a bad idea to run adaware (free program) on your computer if it comes back and see what it finds.

Re: Porn Pop Ups?

Im on here alot and Ive NEVER had anything of any kind pop up when I start a thread or post a reply. Has to be some bug in your system there. Do as Al suggest.

Re: Porn Pop Ups?

Also try using FireFox (different browser), it has a lot less of the security problems that Microsoft's Internet explorer has. Pop-ups are a non-issue on Firefox.

Re: Porn Pop Ups?

I would recommend running or purchasing Webroot Spysweeper, McCafee Anti-Virus or Norton Anti-Virus. They are not that expensive and extremely effective in eliminating that garbage from your computer. Good Luck!!

Re: Porn Pop Ups?

FWIW
I signed on tonight from my wifes side and I was redirected after sumitting my password and user id to a fraud protection site where I had to choose from about 5 or 6 phrases one of which was team camaro in "no caps". I choose that one and ended up on a site for ensurance for a free quote..........darn never get the full frontal on her side.......

Thought it may be helpful......

Re: Porn Pop Ups?

Well i did the adaware install. Found a couple of things, but nothing sserious. I dunno. the only hic-up is that I haven't knowingly(intentionaly) went to any porn sites. I have followed links that will pull me into porn sites. Usually keeps pulling up new pages and requires me to shut off my computer to get them to stop, but I haven't surfed for them. Can that cause it?
