    Default Pop Up Ads

    Anybody else having problems with the pop up ads coming from this site? I do not come on very often and had not been on in a couple of months. Yesterday when I logged on I think I got a Trojan from one of the pop ups. In just the few minutes I've been on here now typing this I have about 5 pop ups. I never had a problem before and I was logging on every day. I am not happy as my computer is still not back to normal.

    Yes it is a problem with this forum for awhile now.

    We all are using either Ublock or Adblock and that takes care of it completely. I haven't seen any since I've been using it. It's available at the Chrome extension store.

    Thank you for your response. Anything for Firefox? I think it's awful that the site allows what Malwarebytes considers malicious content. This is a site that is supposed to help us make more money and now it's potentially causing us to spend all the money we do earn fixing what this malicious content causes. A lot of requestors require you enable pop ups so you would not be able to be on this site while working those hits.

    I checked and Firefox does have Adblock. It's called Adblock Plus. Available at the Firefox Add-ons.

    I leave it on until I run into a survey that tells me to enable pop ups then I just simply turn it off for that particular HIT. I think that's pretty rare that I've run into that. Sometimes a HIT will show up blank. Turn off the blocker temporarily and refresh, it'll show up.
