    Ad popups, redirects and persistent loading

    I was wondering if anyone else has experienced these issues over the last few weeks:

    Only on the clubwrx website I am occasionally getting popup windows or getting extra tabs in my browser opened. Other times I've had the page try to load for quite a long time- so I leave the page and let the ad reload to something different. I've navigated to clubwrx and walked away while it is loading, only to come back to a browser with dozens of tabs open. -_- I've even had an ad popup on my phone when visiting clubwrx.

    Is this because our new benefactors are unscrupulously choosing what kinds of ads to display? I don't want my favorite website to use virusy phishing ads to make revenue.

    Am I the only one?

    Correlation vs causation issues?

    No, we don't use pop up adds. What browser are you using? Also have you scanned your system for adware recently? I hope this can be solved soon

    Sounds like you have some malware screwing with your browser..

    I guess it does seem that way. I'm still perplexed as to why it only seems to bother me on this site. I won't trouble you guys with this anymore then.

    I had a similar issue a year or two ago.. only got the popups on this site for some reason, turned out there was some Firefox add-on that covertly installed itself onto my browser. I think Spybot Search & Destroy took care of it.

    I get popup ads from banners. Not a full-screen deal, but I'll get a takeover banner of a video clip and then it'll run but you I can pause and X-out the takeover. I'm on an older version of safari, but that same thing happens on my fully updated FFox.
