Problems with popups

Postby Vanaladiel » Mon Apr 14, 2014 1:45 pm

Since TORC has started with the advertising and things, has anyone else but me had a problem with popups everywhere I go? I get them even when I am not on TORC too. They disrupt my posts as I am trying to get them done and they send me to other pages out of the blue. Please is this anyone elses problem now or am I the only one??

I don't get any pop ups at all. What web browser to you use? Do you have a pop up blocker? If this happens on other sites, perhaps you have a malware problem.

I have pop up blockers on and I am using Chrome now as a web browser.

So are you saying that TORC has no ads between subjects or on your pages of posts in threads?

Hmmm sounds fishy to me. I've never had any pop-ups like you speak of, here or anywhere else. I'd suggest a thorough scan of your computer, and maybe install an anti-spyware tool (like Spybot search and destroy, which is free and something I've been using for years) if your anti-virus doesn't already include such a feature.

I have done both and still I see ads between the lists of threads in different forums. That is just weird!

Oh and I am using Chrome now instead of Firefox!

I don't see any adverts at all, Vana. I'm using AdBlock Plus as an add-on to Firefox (I haven't ever used Chrome, so I can't comment on that browser). Even before I got AdBlock Plus I don't recall seeing adverts between thread titles. It sounds to me like you've got some infection, rather than something wrong with TORC, I'm afraid, Vana. :cry2:

Ryan worked tirelessly to figure out the problem since it was on his side of the computer too. Turns out it was something in the settings on Chrome and he got it fixed. Thanks for listening to me complain and fret. I am happy now that we found the problem. :D

We both love TORC!
