Today turned on computer and got 2 short vocal ads (no pictures etc) from ATT and Best buy. Where are they coming from? Annoying. Ideas?
Omg!! Had the same thing happen more than once. Scared me to death at first. Now it is annoying, very annoying!!!
You got these ads just by turning the computer on? Without opening a web page?
Yes. I was sitting in the living room, no sound except from tv. All of a sudden.....wow, from the computer and more than one ad. Don't remember which ads they were. Guess I was too shocked to remember. Creepy for sure. Have also had voices while I was working on the computer so I've had it both ways.
I will be interested in this, never heard of that happening when you first turn on the PC, before. It happened to me once, but I was on the net on the site it was coming from. When I closed the site out it was still playing on my PC. LOL
A basic Google using the keywords "ads start up computer" (sans quotes) presented many reports of this malady. I found the one from tomshardware.com interesting.
Will have to wait until tomarrow to bring up the computer again. So far the rest of today--no ads.
