Getting popups on gardenweb forums. Computer is clean and it's only happening on gardenweb. Desktop running windows 7 using IE9 to browse, what's going on? Was not doing this yesterday? April fools joke? Went to hubby's work with him and he could do no work as all the servers were down at school and memo said it was definately not an April fools joke and it was major and wold take a long time to fix, weird day being April fools.

Just tried my IE9 on Vista and found no ads or pop ups.

Strange, it's only on gardenweb. Will run malewarebytes again and my virus scanner. Have to boot up the laptop later to finish son taxes. Same specs so will see what happens there. Mary

I play with IE every once in a while and they popped up on me a couple of day ago. I thought that was normal because I have been using FF for a long time.

I only use IE and have never seen pop ups before. I don't use firefox but have it installed and it didn't happen with firefox so must be IE9 and this site or something. No pop ups any where else on the net. Mary

Firefox plus AdBlock Plus with Easy List, No ads ever.

I am one of the odd ball few that doesn't like firefox. For some reason it always freezes on me, both computers and IE doesn't and just works much better for me. Another scan came up clean. Mary

The ones I saw were the words highlighted with green and they pop up right in your face. They are really annoying, I have IE 10.

On what may be any page of the forum scroll down to the bottom of the page for more information on in-text links.

There is still one in the email spam in Da's post. It is highlighter in green with a small symbol beside it.

I'm here at work now using the W7 with IE9. No ads, and the only in-text link is Windows 7 in ACL's original post.

Acraftylady, there is still one in my IE 10. It is the word "forums" with the little symbol beside it. I don't think it pops up unless you run your cursor over it. You just have to learn to keep your cursor off the written word. Literally!

I didn't have anything coming up when I hovered. Just the pop up I showed as soon as went on any page here yesterday. I had the green links suddenly appear months ago and followed the instructions to unsub and those have been gone ever since. Mary
