What's with the popups?

The one thing that really burns my ass. A popup selling some **** to stop popups.

Another great site to visit.

I wish I could show you but I don't know how. I do know that I've been inundated with popups since I logged on to this new format.

Re: What's with the popups?

I guess my pop-up stopper must be working because I haven't seen one.

Pop ups from here?? I suspect some spyware is on your machine or something... Maybe some windows gurus will chime in.

Go to Cnet.com and download AdAware. Works pretty good at deleting spyware stuff on your pc...plus it's free.

Re: What's with the popups?

Get the Adaware! I use it all the time and is great.

But like everyone else I haven't had any popups from the board on either of my PC's and I don't have any popup killers either.

Re: What's with the popups?

No pop ups here and I don't use a blocker

Do unto others, before some prick does it to you!

Re: What's with the popups?

No popups for me either. Another vote goes to Ad Aware! I've seen it pick up 500+ spyware items on a single computer

Re: What's with the popups?

No pop-up ads are used on this site. Check your machine for Adware/Spyware.

Re: What's with the popups?

The only pop-ups I have are in my fridge.

I use Adaware and Spybot to get rid or adware/spyware. Works great.

Bikes and women - both have nice curves.

Get Adaware and Spybot. Run both and you'll be fine.
