Quick Question

I just have a quick question for all of you...

source

Lately I've been getting all kinds of pop-up windows appear each time I try to click on a link within a blog post - ANY blog post (wordpress and blogger) on just about ANY link.  Even when I click on the "comments" link to leave a comment, a pop up window appears for some company.  And it's always the same two or three pop ups.  I should have thought to get a screen print (but I didn't).  It's been happening to me all week, though.  Has this been happening to any of you lately?  Does anyone know if there's a way to fix this?  It's never happened before.

No it never happened to me but it seems a bit fishy . Pop ups are not good as some of them are spam . Hope you can get over it soon before any malfuntion to anything .

Hmm... Sounds like something snuck onto your computer when you weren't looking. Did you download anything recently? Check your programs & uninstall anything that looks fishy. Also possible that be cause by an extension in your browser so check that as well.

I'd do a virus scan and look into installing ad block, I know my husband uses it. Best of luck getting it fixed!

Thank you guys for your help. We have anti-virus software, so I'll take your suggestions and see where it leads me. Hoping to get this fixed soon!

Ohhhh, that is annoying. It happened to me a few years ago. And it was a virus.

I've not had that problem. Do you have a pop-up blocker? I have one on my computer and I rarely get them.

My Internet Explorer was hijacked once and I was getting them. That was years ago.

What browser are you using? I find that Google Chrome or Firefox seems to be more stable than Internet Explorer and I've had less problems.

That's strange. Hasn't happened to me, but I'll watch out for it.
