Too many pop-ups

Too many pop-up ads here on Gardenweb. I have Adblock plus and just got a Javascript one that blocks the forums from opening, but does not block the pop-up ads. I give up.
If anyone wants to chat about gardening, I hope to see you over at Iris Lovers page on Facebook.
Goodbye friends.

No no no, you can't leave. I haven't had many lately and I don't have anything special installed.
Now on cnn I get them that stay and stay about 10 seconds, no way to close them, then it finally swipes itself away in rows. Very annoying

Its not Garden Web. You have malware. Install Malwarebytes for free and it roots out some very mean malware. I would guess you have either something called veribytes- an ad malware,or something like that.

I have no popups whatsoever on Safari on my Mac. None.

Eh,every now and then Firefox says it blocked an add on GW. But nowhere nears the amount of Renee's.
Try the malwarebytes. You could have a few trojans on the PC.

RE: Too many pop-ups

I don't get any pop ups at all and I don't have anything special that I know of,then again,dh takes care of all that computer stuff for me.
