Pop-up advert question

Post  Shezza on Thu Aug 22, 2013 7:29 am

I've just had an advert for a porn site appear after clicking a topic link in general chat Shocked Has anyone else seen that, or should I get G to investigate our net connection? Neutral

Wah! Yeah I'd install AdBlock Plus and also give your computer a scan with your antivirus to make sure it's nothing on your end.

Thanks Wesker. I was wracking my brain trying to see what I'd clicked to bring up "local sluts" flashing their bits at me.affraid 

Must investigate blocking ads on iPad.

The pop ups are based on your previous browsing history. Wink

I don't get pop ups, just the ad at the top of the page. When I'm on my laptop it's polishes and dresses that I've looked at on various websites. If I use OH's laptops, it's naked women. He claims it's random...yeah right.
