Default Pop-up Ads

Grrrrrrr~ What's with these popup ads which are covering up everything, and when I click them off, they keep coming back? They're totally odious! I hope there's some kind of fix for this situation!!! Is there?

I have never seen pop-ups in TrekEarth...
Maybe you got some virus??

I hope they aren't pop-ups from Anti Virus Pro! If so you most definitely have a malware virus which takes some getting rid of.

Perhaps you make a confusion with publicity advetising in the new version of TE ?

JudyR referred specifically to 'pop-ups' and I haven't noticed any advertising on TE that fits that description.

Yes, they pop up from the moving ad at the top of the page to the right of the TrekEarth logo. Thanks so much for the feedback. I sure hope I don't have a problem but it's nice to know that you don't. It's a real drag! Judy

Use Firefox with adblock so you never see any ads.

Thanks for the suggestion. I've run my McAfee computer cleanup without finding any malware. Luckily, the popup ads seem to be confined to Trekearth only. What a drag they are, though. Your foxfire suggestion is a good one. My spouse uses foxfire on his computer, so maybe I can get it too.

Yes, there are pop-up ads. I have observed it for two weeks now. It comes out at the top and it covers everything all the way down to the subtitle bar below the main Forum title. The bad part is viewers cannot read the information while the ad is on. I am definitely sure I have no virus in my computer. I am using the new TE format.

Yes, I'm sorry to saw we are experiencing the same thing. Everytime I'm finding it with someone, I'm removing them from my favorites to see if I can stem the tide. I'd hate to have to leave this site as I just love it. I can't find a way to ask for help from the system administrators, but I hope they know about it and are working on a way to overcome it. It seems to be limited to TrekEarth, thank heavens! Judy
